Abstract

The statistical foundation of the macroscopic principles or even thermodynamics is an evitable scientific problem of long tradition. The significant successes are almost perfect. But only almost. The eventually slight problems left are obstinate. The hardest one may be the explanation of the irreversibility of processes. The known propositions are either sophisticated or based on complicated presumptions not simpler then the fact of irreversibility itself. The question has emerged for me whether the opposite way is easier. Surveying the thermodynamic modeling for a micro-canonical esemble of some particular calssical particles, step by step, one can realize that statistics is obtained. The method is the same as the usual one applied when trating a macroscopic system. Having analyzed the whole procedure, one finds that the classics founded the statistical theories by thermodynamic methods.
