Classical and quantum irreversibility


National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute, pl. akad. Kurchatova 1, Moscow, 123182, Russian Federation

Irreversibility of physical systems is discussed by considering the simplest example of a low-density gas, either in isolation or in thermal equilibrium with the walls of a container. Attention is concentrated on an analysis of a logical scheme for a theoretical description of the irreversibility.
