These are related to the physical conditions for the possible occurrence of the so-called property of macroscopic irreversibility (PMI) and the consequent one represented by the decay to kinetic equilibrium (DKE) which characterize the 1-body (kinetic) PDF in these N-body systems, i.e., when 1-body-factorized initial conditions are considered for the N-body Liouville equation [3].
