Thermodynamic Limit in Statistical Physics
by A. L. Kuzemsky
Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 29
The thermodynamic limit in statistical thermodynamics of many-particle systems is an important but often overlooked issue in the various applied studies of condensed matter physics. To settle this issue, we review tersely the past and present disposition of thermodynamic limiting procedure in the structure of the contemporary statistical mechanics and our current understanding of this problem...

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 ...

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.
