Microscopic theory of irreversible processes.
The microscopic theory of irreversible processes that we developed is summarized and illustrated, using as a simple example the Friedrichs model. Our approach combines the Poincaré's point of viewExpand

The second law as a selection principle: The microscopic theory of dissipative processes in quantum systems.
The second law of thermodynamics, for quantum systems, is formulated, on the microscopic level. As for classical systems, such a formulation is only possible when specific conditions are satisfiedExpand

On the relation of dynamics to statistical mechanics
A new conceptual framework for the foundations of statistical mechanics starting from dynamics is presented. It is based on the classification and the study of invariants in terms of the concepts ofExpand

The Macroscopic Level of Quantum Mechanics
The problem of relating the quantum mechanical description of atomic processes to the behaviour of matter in bulk is resolved in a conceptually simple treatment.

Subdynamics and correlations
Abstract Prigogine, Henin and the author have introduced the concept of subdynamics to study the behaviour of large systems. The usual thermodynamic description of such systems can be formulated in aExpand

Kinetic theory and ergodic properties.
It is often assumed that the justification of kinetic theory lies in ergodic theory. From the properties of the collision operator, which plays a basic role in our kinetic description of dynamicalExpand
