**Statistical Physics**

by Yuri Galperin, Jens Feder

**Publisher**: University of Oslo 2008**Number of pages**: 187

**Description**:

Statistical physics is an unfinished and highly active part of physics. Many types of nonlinear systems that lead to complicated pattern formation processes, the properties of granular media, earthquakes, friction and many other systems are beyond our present understanding and theoretical tools. The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with the central issues of statistical mechanics.

**The basic paradoxes of statistical classical physics and quantum mechanics**

by

**Oleg Kupervasser**-

**arXiv**

Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.
