Small book cover: Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 72

Description:
We review some of the many recent activities on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, focusing on some of the fundamental issues and general aspects. Using the language of stochastic Markov processes, we emphasize general properties of the evolution of configurational probabilities, as described by master equations.
