Focuses on statistical mechanics which is the application of probability theory, which includes mathematical tools for dealing with large populations, to the field of mechanics, which is concerned with the motion of particles or objects when subjected to a force.
This book presents an up-to-date formalism of non-equilibrium Green's functions covering different applications ranging from solid state physics, plasma physics, cold atoms in optical lattices up to relativistic transport and heavy ion collisions.
Presents thermodynamics as self-contained and elegant set of ideas and methods. Introduces the necessary mathematical methods assuming no prior knowledge. Explains concepts like entropy and free energy with many examples.
A summary of various fluctuation relations, experimental tests of these relations, and their applications, this book constitutes the first step towards a comprehensive picture of nonequilibrium phenomena at the mesoscopic scales.
Presents a comprehensive introduction to the theory of phase transitions and... Læs mere
