Title: On the Cassandro--Olivieri renormalization method and the foundations of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics

Abstract: Text of a talk given at Marzio Cassandro's 65-th birthday meeting: he is among the few who like the power of the cluster expansion and who applied it to various problems in Statistical Mechanics and Field Theory devising ways of combining the technique with the renormalization group with the aim of converting heuristic ideas into rigorous results and methods.

Key words:  Mechanics, Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics, Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics, Coupled maps
