In the next two chapters we are going to apply the general formalism to two very simple examples. The aim is twofold: first of all, pedagogical. We want to demonstrate how some well-known results manifest themselves in the framework of the formalism of the foregoing sections. Secondly, we want to use the equations of Brownian motion as a heuristic starting point for more general kinetic equations.
