Abstract : If P is a transient Markov chain having the invariant measure m, and if at time 0 particles were distributed in the state space s according to the Poisson law, with mean m(x) at x, and then these particles move independently of the others according to the law P, the system maintains itself in macroscopic equilibrium. In this memorandum several phenomena connected with this system are investigated. (Author)
