Non-Equilibrium Processes
by

Publisher: Boston University

Description:
The author illustrates non-equilibrium statistical physics by presenting a number of current and paradigmatic examples of systems that are out of equilibrium, and elucidates, as completely as possible, the range of techniques available to solve these systems.

General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. We illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.

A new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics is explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations.
