A given instant? 1 Let us define a coarse instant as a sequence t = t[i])∞ i=1 such that t[i] ∈ i Z (that is, it[i] ∈ Z) for all i, and there exists t[∞] ∈ R (call it the refinement of the coarse instant) such that t[i] → t[∞] for i → ∞. A coarse time interval is a pair (s, t) of coarse instants s, t such that s ≤ t in the sense that s[i] ≤ t[i] for all i. For every coarse time interval (s, t) we define the coarse probability space (Ωs,t [i], Fs,t [i], Ps,t [i])∞ i=1 , As,t as follows. 16 Second, Fs,t [i] and Ps,t [i] are defined naturally, and we have the canonical measure preserving map (Ω[i], F[i], P [i]) → (Ωs,t [i], Fs,t [i], Ps,t [i]).
