Fundamental Kinetic Processes
by E. Ben-Naim, P. L. Krapivsky, S. Redner
Publisher: Boston University 2008
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.

Applications of the thermodynamic and statistical mechanics of small systems range from molecular biology to micro-mechanics, including models of nano-transport, Brownian motors, and (living or artificial) self-propelled organisms.

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.

In this book we describe a new non-perturbative approach to the fermionic many-body problem, which can be considered as a generalization to arbitrary dimensions of the well-known bosonization technique for one-dimensional fermions.

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.
