Statistical Physics: a Short Course for Electrical Engineering Students
by Neri Merhav
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 146
This is a set of lecture notes of a course on statistical physics and thermodynamics, which is oriented, to a certain extent, towards electrical engineering students. The main body of the lectures is devoted to statistical physics, whereas much less emphasis is given to the thermodynamics part.

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.

Statistical physics is a highly active part of physics. Many types of nonlinear systems are beyond our present understanding and theoretical tools. The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with the central issues of statistical mechanics.

We review some of the many recent activities on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, focusing on general aspects. Using the language of stochastic Markov processes, we emphasize general properties of the evolution of configurational probabilities.
