Realizability and Extension of Measures: Classical and Quantum

TYPETheor./Math. Physics Seminar
Speaker:Prof. Joel Lebowitz
Location:Lewiner Seminar Room (412)
Abstract:I will describe some work related to the following type of question:
Given the probability distribution
of particle configurations in some finite region of space, when can
this be extended to a translation invariant measure on all of space?
When the answer is yes what are the properties, e.g. the entropy, of
such extended measures. There are similar questions about the
extension of density matrices for quantum systems.
