Statistical Mechanics of Time Independent Non-Dissipative Nonequilibrium States
Amorphous solids are typically nonergodic and thus a more general formulation of statistical mechanics, with a clear link to thermodynamics, is required. We present a rigorous development of the nonergodic statistical mechanics and the resulting thermodynamics for a canonical ensemble, where the 6N dimensional phase space contains a set of distinct nonoverlapping domains. An ensemble member which is initially in one domain is assumed to remain there for a time long enough that the distribution...[Show more]
