Reconceptualising equilibrium in Boltzmannian statistical mechanics and characterising its existence

Abstract

In Boltzmannian statistical mechanics macro-states supervene on microstates. This leads to a partitioning of the state space of a system into regions of macroscopically indistinguishable micro-states. The largest of these regions is singled out as the equilibrium region of the system. What justifies this association? We review currently available answers to… (More)
