**Non-Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics**

by

**Gunnar Pruessner**-

**Imperial College London**

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.
