Billiards, invariant measures, and equilibrium thermodynamics. II. (English) Zbl 1078.82012
Summary: The kinetics of collisionless continuous medium is studied in a bounded region on a curved manifold. We have assumed that in statistical equilibrium, the probability distribution density depends only on the total energy. It is shown that, in this case, all the fundamental relations for a multidimensional ideal gas in thermal equilibrium hold true.
