Introduction to Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics with Quantum Field
by Takafumi Kita
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 78
The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory by considering an ensemble of interacting identical bosons or fermions as an example. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics such as Feynman diagrams, the proper self-energy, and Dyson's equation.

This introductory text was aimed at giving a basic knowledge of the concepts and methods of statistical physics to the readers, so that they could later on follow more advanced lectures on diverse topics in the field of complex systems.

We review our research regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, and on the statistical physical modelling.
