Example text

As a result, the temporal symmetry of the theory is broken. Irreversibility appears as a result of the scission of the unitary group describing the evolution into two dissipative, nonunitary semigroups. 7) Prigogine states quite rightly: ‘‘An extension of dynamics? This appears as a very strong statement, that can easily be misunderstood. There is no question here about adding new terms to the equations of dynamics. . ’’ ‘‘. . There is no question of adding new terms that would break the symmetry of the equations, like Epicurus’ clinamen.

Ilya prigogine: his life, his work 19 authors developed a theory leading to a ‘‘causal irreversible dynamics’’ and to a definition of entropy. When the Indian physicist Bandyanath Misra arrived in Brussels, the final touch was achieved for this construct. For this reason, in order to avoid repetitions, I prefer to discuss here only this final form of the theory. The new formulation, which approached the problem from a totally different point of view, appears in a series of papers, from which we extract mainly: B.
