The publication goals to provide an summary of the former Sitges meetings, that have been held over the past 25 years, with detailed emphasis on issues with regards to non-equilibrium phenomena. It contains assessment articles and articles facing new traits within the topic, written via scientists who've performed a tremendous function within the improvement of this sector. The booklet is meant as a commemorative variation of the Sitges meetings. Graduate scholars of physics and researchers will locate this a stimulating account of the improvement of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics within the final years, masking a large scope of themes: kinetic thought, hydrodynamics, fluctuation phenomena and stochastic methods, rest phenomena, kinetics of section transitions, development kinetics, and so forth.

There are two "second sound" peaks at ~ = z]:28 [31]. 4a). are enough particles inside ,~t that their number, momentum and energy is to a very good approximation conserved and the hydrodynamic equations can be used to describe their changes in time. Similarly in neutron scattering where the wavelength of a neutron ,k,, ~ a so that there is only one particle inside ,k, only its number (or mass) is conserved (not its momentum and energy which are constantly changing due to many collisions with the surrounding particles) and the (self-)diffusion equation can be used to describe its change with time.

They can be determined theoretically either from kinetic theory [4°] or from generalized hydrodynamics[37]. For small wavelengths, in the neutron scattering regime, only the extended heat mode can be considered as a real (extended) eigenmode of the fluid also for large k, all the other modes are conglomerates obtained from the superposition of many real eigenmodes.
