Abstract:

Time evolution of large, complicated systems in Statistical Physics is

best described by probabilistic models. However, these models don't

"explain" the physical phenomena in the sense that they are seemingly in

contradiction with the fully deterministic laws of Physics that work so

well in describing microscopic motion.

The science of Dynamical Systems in Mathematical Statistical Physics tries

to bridge that gap. In the talk I will present a few simple models where

random behavior of an actually deterministic system can be shown in a

strict mathematical sense.
