Abstract. For systems of particles in classical phase space with
standard Hamiltonian, we consider (spatially averaged)
microcanonical Gibbs distributions in finite boxes. We
show that infinite-volume limits along suitable subsequences
exist and are grand canonical Gibbs measures. On the way,
we establish a variational formula for the thermodynamic
entropy density, as well as a variational characterization
of grand canonical Gibbs measures.
