Statistical Mechanics I: Statistical Mechanics of Particles MIT

 Education

Statistical Mechanics is a probabilistic approach to equilibrium properties of large numbers of degrees of freedom. In this twosemester course, basic principles are examined. Topics include: Thermodynamics, probability theory, kinetic theory, classical statistical mechanics, interacting systems, quantum statistical mechanics, and identical particles.
