Abstract:

Progress in non equilibrium statistical mechanics and thermodynamics achieved in the last two years is summarized. The main emphasis is put on the development of our quasi-particle theory which has now been extended to arbitrary order in the coupling constant. This quasi-particle theory leads to the replacement of the usual Hamiltonian description involving potential energy of interaction by a collection of colliding excitations. Progress in macroscopic stability theory obtained through a generalization of non equilibrium thermodynamics is also described.
