The States of classical statistical mechanics
MECANIQUE STATISTIQUE
Abstract : a state of an infinite system in classical statistical mechanics is usually described by its correlation functions. We discuss here other description in particular as 1) a state on a B*-algebras, 2) a collection of density distributions, 3) a field theory 4) a mesure on a space of configurations of infitely many particles. We consier the relations between these various descriptions and prove under very general conditions an integral representation of a state as superposition of extremal invariant states corresponding to pure thermodynamical phases.

Abstract : Let ?? be a B* algebra with a group G of automorphisms and K be the set of G?invariant states on ??. We discuss conditions under which a G?invariant state has a unique integral representation in terms of extremal points of K, i.e., extremal invariant states.

Abstract : The equilibrium states for an infinite system of classical mechanics may be represented by states over Abelian C* algebras. We consider here continuous and lattice systems and define a mean entropy for their states. The properties of this mean entropy are investigated : linearity, upper semi-continuity, integral representations. In the lattice case, it is found that our mean entropy coincides with the KOLMOGOROV-SINAI invariant of ergodic theory.

Almost periodic states on C*-algebras *)

GROUPES D'AUTOMORSPHISME
Abstract : Given a C*-algebra O with a group of automorphisms, we define and study almost periodic states on O. A natural decomposition of such states is introduced and discussed.
*) These notes are a result of discussions between S. Dpolicher, G. Gallavotti and D. Ruelle, they are not intended for publication.

Abstract : Let E be the compact set of states on a C?-algebra U with identity. We discuss the representations of a state ? as barycenter of a probability measure ? on E. Examples of such representations are the central decomposition and the ergodic decomposition. They are associated with an Abelian von Neumann algebra B in the commutant ?(U)? of the image of U in the representation canonically associated with ?. This situation is studied in general and a number of applications are discussed.
