Thermodynamic behavior of conservative mechanical systems
In this talk we present several examples when non-dissipative mechanical systems exhibit behavior which can be interpreted at a large scale as not only thermodynamical but also dissipative. The origin of such 'transformation' is weak rater than strong convergence with respect to a small parameter.
