Abstract: the theory of weak turbulence has been put forward by appliedmathematicians to describe the asymptotic behavior of NLS set on a compactdomain - as well as many other infinite dimensional Hamiltonian systems.It is believed to be valid in a statistical sense, in the weaklynonlinear, infinite volume limit. I will present how these limits can betaken rigorously, and give rise to new equations.
