To visualize the meaning of the index i, let us identify it with the velocity of a particle. In a more advanced theory p i is the occupation probability of a quantum state i of a many-particle system. Further, we identify f i,α (k) with energy E and the parameter a with the volume. Thus we putand have the identifications.
