ergodic +‎ -ally

Examples

  • Footnotes are embedded texts that ask the reader to read ergodically, and they are very much distractions.

    Excerpt from Calembouria (in collaboration with Anthony Metivier)

  • If the quantum state evolves in a finite-dimensional Hilbert space, it evolves ergodically through a torus of phases, and will exhibit all of the usual problems of Boltzmann brains and the like (as Dyson, Kleban, and Susskind have emphasized).

    What if Time Really Exists?

  • So either the universe is not eternal — so that it doesn’t have time to fluctuate ergodically throughout phase space — or its set of states is not bounded — so that it evolves forever, but doesn’t sample every possible configuration.
