Abstract: 

Abstract:The talk will present, in a very pedagogical way, what is the "ergodic problem" in classical statistical mechanics. In the first part I will recall some basic notions of basic statistical mechanics and in the second part I will define rigorously what is an ergodic dynamical system and I will prove a theorem on the characterisation of ergodic systems. I will recall all the preliminary notions that are necessary to understand the talk.


The "What is...?" seminars are informal talks organized by students of the Geometry and Mathematical Physics sector. Their aim is to present in an accessible way various topics in contemporary mathematics.
Everybody is welcome to attend.
