From where do , , originate? These values give the macrostate of the system for any point in time or as given by the initial conditions of Newtonian evolution. Recall that the principle tells us how to construct an ensemble corresponding to a state that is characterized from the macroscopic level so it is essential that we specify these variables. 5) In this case, the microstate index denotes a specific set of all position and ). At this point, you may be a bit perplexed about momenta values, ( , applying these ideas to classical systems.

4-1 4-2 The principle of equal a priori probabilities postulates that, at equilibrium in an isolated system (constant , , ), all microstates consistent with the macrostate are equally likely. Specifically, the system is equally likely to be in any of its Ω( , , ) microstates. Other microstates, at different values of for example, are not visited by the system. In other words, the principle gives us an exact recipe for computing the microstate probabilities in isolated systems. For our exercise in making tally marks, we would expect to find the same number of tallies on average for each microstate in the catalogue that had the same energy as the initial energy, which is also the macroscopic energy .

As we will find in more detail later, an internal constraint can also exist naturally due to sluggish kinetics. It could be the observation that a system maintains a liquid state below its freezing point due to slow crystallization kinetics, at which point it would be supercooled.
