This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The goal is to develop some ideas of contemporary research. Many of the ideas are illustrated or even introduced by examples.

The review is devoted to the elucidation of the basic problems arising in the theoretical investigation of systems with Bose-Einstein condensate. Understanding these problems is necessary for the correct description of Bose-condensed systems.

The author discusses using statistical mechanics to understand real systems, rather than ideal systems that can be solved exactly. In addition dynamics and fluctuations are considered. These notes are an attempt to summarize the main points.

Statistical physics is a highly active part of physics. Many types of nonlinear 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.
