Lecture Notes in Statistical Mechanics
by Igor Vilfan
Publisher: The J. Stefan Institute 2002
Number of pages: 137
These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.

This is a set of lecture notes of a course on statistical physics and thermodynamics, oriented towards electrical engineering students. The main body of the lectures is devoted to statistical physics, whereas much less emphasis is on thermodynamics.

These are notes for quantum and statistical mechanics courses. Topics covered: master equations; non-equilibrium processes; fluctuation theorems; linear response theory; adiabatic transport; the Kubo formalism; scattering approach to mesoscopics.

The goal of this set of lectures is to combine two seemingly unrelated topics: (1) The study of Boolean functions, a field particularly active in computer science; (2) Some models in statistical physics, mostly percolation.

A brief introduction to the relativistic kinetic theory of gases with emphasis on the underlying geometric and Hamiltonian structure of the theory. We start with a discussion on the tangent bundle of a Lorentzian manifold of arbitrary dimension...
