A Generalization of the Principle of Detailed Balancing in μ-Space

Published inHelvetica physica acta, vol. 37, no. 6, p. 521-531
Publication date1964

The H-theorem in μ-space for a mixture of free molecules or particles A, B, ... undergoing all sorts of multiple collisions or reactions (creation and annihilation) is generalized to the case, where detailed balancing (DB) does not hold, and for the 3 statistics (Boltzmann, Bose-Einstein, and Fermi-Dirac). The equilibrium condition is given in terms of the chemical potentials μA, μB, ... The transition probabilities between macrocells have to satisfy a weaker condition than DB.
