Example text

In this representation the Liouville equation is transformed into a coupled set of equations for the Fourier components. These equations are naturally interpreted as describing the coupled evolution of the correlations, consisting of creations, transformations, and destructions of correlations in time. This new language of dynamics of correlations replaces the traditional language of mechanics in terms of motion of a point along a trajectory. 2. Projection Operators In C. 9). 17 A detailed exposition is given in R.

The extension of these methods to quantum systems is possible, and it has been done by Prigogine and his co-workers. 25) that establishes a correspondence between the numerous terms of the perturbation expansion and some well-adapted and efficient diagrams. It thus becomes possible to estimate visually, before any calculation, the order of magnitude of any term in the perturbation expansion of the distribution function. [The idea of a diagram technique was previously introduced in quite different fields: Mayer in the 1930s, for equilibrium statistical mechanics, and Feynman in the 1950s, for quantum field theory].

We have here a very appealing idea that must, of course, be confirmed in the future by quantum gravity. F. Philosophical Vision After 1977, Prigogine’s scientific activity was parallelled by an intense literary and philosophical activity. Its purpose was, clearly, the propagation of his ideas outside of the limited world of chemists, physicists, and biologists. 1). ] It became an extraordinary best-seller, translated into numerous languages. The book is, however, not easy to read. It is directed, in principle, to a wide, ‘‘enlightened,’’ but not specialized, audience.
