3 4 SUMMARY This thesis presents an in-depth study of statistical mechanical systems having microcano-nical equilibrium properties, i.e., energy-dependent equilibrium properties, which cannot be put in correspondence with their canonical or temperature-dependent equilibrium properties. A general theory of these systems which focuses both on the… (More)
