**Thermodynamic Limit in Statistical Physics**

by A. L. Kuzemsky

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 29

**Description**:

The thermodynamic limit in statistical thermodynamics of many-particle systems is an important but often overlooked issue in the various applied studies of condensed matter physics. To settle this issue, we review tersely the past and present disposition of thermodynamic limiting procedure in the structure of the contemporary statistical mechanics and our current understanding of this problem...
