The McLennan ensemble describes close-to-equilibrium
stationary fluctuations. It summarizes the usual linear response theory
around reversible Markov processes.
As these McLennan ensembles for spatially extended systems extend the
class of Gibbs measures to close-to-equilibrium situations, there arise
a number of natural statistical mechanical questions related to their
thermodynamic limit and
phase transition behavior. In this talk we introduce the McLennan
ensembles and show their main interest and properties. The rest of the
talk formulates a number of open questions.
