### Abstract

For classical N-particle systems with pair interaction N^{-1} {Mathematical expression} ø(q_{i}-q_{i}) the Vlasov dynamics is shown to be the w*-limit as N→∞. Propagation of molecular chaos holds in this limit, and the fluctuations of intensive observables converge to a Gaussian stochastic process.
