Coarse Graining

  1. Oct 13, 2005 #1
    I'm having a bit of a hard time getting my head around this idea. Can anyone provide some links to good references, or offer an explanation here? Thanks.

    Is this a material science question?

    I suppose it could be, but I was asking more about the general procedure of coarse graining phase space. It's more a statistical mechanics question, I think. I'm not having much luck in finding explanations that I can understand.
