Thermodynamic behavior of conservative mechanical systems

  • Lev Truskinovsky (Ecole Polytechnique)
A3 01 (Sophus-Lie room)


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.
