Pure State Quantum Statistical Mechanics
by Christian Gogolin
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 84
The capabilities of a new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics are explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations. No additional randomness is added by hand and no assumptions about a priori probabilities are made, instead measure concentration results are used to justify the methods of Statistical Physics.

General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. We illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.
