|Title:||A nonequilibrium ensemble formalism: Criterion for truncation of description|
|Abstract:||In the framework of a nonequilibrium statistical ensemble formalism, consisting of the so-called Nonequilibrium Statistical Operator Method, we discuss the question of the choice of the space of thermohydrodynamic states. We consider in particular the relevant question of the truncation of description (reduction of the dimension of the state space). A criterion for justifying the different levels of truncation is derived. It depends on the range of wavelengths and frequencies which are the relevant ones for the characterization, in terms of normal modes, of the thermohydrodynamic motion in a nonequilibrium open system. Applications to the cases of thermal-sensitive resins and of n-doped polar semiconductors are done, numerical results are presented, and experimental observation is discussed.
