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 of our formulation of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. A central role is played by thecollision operator. The asymptotic behaviour of a class of states is determined by the collisional invariants independently of the ergodicity of the system. For this class of states we have an approach to… Expand
