Sentences Containing 'equilibrium'

Alec Nove and Janos Kornai held similar positions regarding economic equilibrium.
As an approach to studying economic activity, economic reproduction contrasts with equilibrium economics, because economic reproduction is concerned not with statics or with how economic development gravitates towards an equilibrium, but rather with "dynamics"—that is, the motion of an economy.

Since the concentrations do not change thereafter, they are, by definition, equilibrium concentrations.
Since the underlying microscopic processes are active even in the absence of external perturbations, one can also study "relaxation "in" equilibrium" instead of the usual "relaxation "into" equilibrium" (see fluctuation-dissipation theorem).
