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.

We consider some mathematical questions about Boltzmann equations for quantum particles, relativistic or non relativistic. Relevant cases such as Bose, Bose-Fermi, and photon-electron gases are studied. We also consider some simplifications ...
