Fundamental Kinetic Processes
by

Publisher: Boston University

Description:
The authors discuss the development of basic kinetic approaches to more complex and contemporary systems. Among the large menu of stochastic and irreversible processes, we chose the ones that we consider to be among the most important and most instructive in leading to generic understanding. The target audience is graduate students with a one-course background in equilibrium statistical physics.
