In the every day life, there are many examples of mixing phenomena : milk and water in a same container will not stay separate from each other, marbles in a bag will not line up spontaneously according to their color, ... In this first talk, we intend to study a simple mathematical model which explains why we can observe spontaneous mixing but not the reverse phenomenon.
