Charles Moslonka and Ken Sekimoto,  arxiv.org/abs/2106.14821 (will be revised soon)
Martingale-induced local invariance in progressive quenching
  (The martingale in our system has turned out to be exact. PQ is in fact a typical model of martingale.)

   Mesoscopic formulas of linear and angular momentum fluxes
     (Irving-Kirkwood formula (1950) relates the macroscopic forces in a dense gas fluid to the dynamics of constituting molecules. Nobody has imagined that this formula could reappear in the description of the dynamics of collective amoeba motion. By looking at the I-K formula as a generic transformation of the momentum flow at small scale to the one at large scale, the formula becomes a powerful tool to combine the vast wisdom of the statistical mechanics and the constructionist approach of complex systems including slime mold.)
