Title: From microscopic hamiltonian dynamics to heat equation
Abstract: One of the main problems in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics is to derive, by space-time rescaling, macroscopic irreversible diffusive evolution for the co nserved quantities of an
(large) hamiltonian system. I will describe the mathematical setup of the problem, and some recent progress when the hamiltonian dynamics is perturbed by energy conserving stochastic collisions.
