The discovery of chaotic motion in low-dimensional systems raised the question: What kind of thermodynamics describes a system if it is neither ergodic nor Hamiltonian or possesses a finite number of degrees of freedom? This Monographs is the first to discuss this question.... the piston and the bottom of the vessel. (We change the previous notation y for this distance to z to reserve the letter y for slow variables.) (Fig. 2.1). The distance z fluctuates around its equilibrium position because of collisions of moleculesanbsp;...
