The generalization of Boltzmann’s solution turned out to be especially difficult. In their 1973 paper, PGHR performed a synthesis of the projector method of C. George and the idea of a transformation of r. The PGHR paper was considered for several years as the ‘‘bible’’ of Prigogine’s group. The 10 A significant anecdote: During a summer school in Sitges, Spain, in 1972, an anonymous student replaced the lettering of the announcement of a lecture by Rosenfeld about Prigoginian statistical mechanics by substituting the anagram: ‘‘EL DEFENSOR’’!

C). But its properties are quite different from the one he imagined in 1945! 4. The Prigogine–Petrosky Formalism The problem raised now is of a physical, rather than mathematical, nature: Is it possible to realize the MPC program for a system of N particles (N ) 1) enclosed in a volume V, large compared to the atomic scale? The calculations are performed by taking N and V finite, anticipating the limit N ! 1, V ! 1, N=V : finite, which is taken at the end of the calculations. The objects of the theory are dynamical functions and distribution functions depending on the coordinates (q; p, or J; a) of phase space.

The ‘‘extension of dynamics’’ thus only appears in the operation of regularization of the resonances. This step is also the one that is most difficult to justify rigorously; it is related to the (practical) necessity to use perturbation calculus (see Appendix). After this long discussion of the successive formulations of statistical mechanics that appeared during 50 years of intense work on the microscopic theory of irreversibility, I should like to conclude by taking a distant view of the global result.
