We present a path toward determining the statistical origin of the thermodynamic limit for systems with long-range interactions. We assume throughout that the systems under consideration have thermodynamic properties given by the Tsallis entropy. We rely on the composition property of the Tsallis entropy for determining effective metrics and measures on their configuration/phase spaces. We point out the significance of Muckenhoupt weights, of doubling measures and of doubling measure-induced metric deformations of the metric. We comment on the volume deformations induced by the Tsallis entropy composition and on the significance of functional spaces for these constructions.
