Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquids
by Denis J. Evans, Gary P. Morriss
Publisher: ANU E Press 2007
Number of pages: 318
Designed for both researchers in the field and graduate students of physics, this book charts the development and theoretical analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. It connects molecular dynamics simulation with the mathematical theory to understand non-equilibrium steady states.

Basic principles are examined: the laws of thermodynamics and the concepts of temperature, work, heat, and entropy. Postulates of classical statistical mechanics, microcanonical, canonical, and grand canonical distributions; lattice vibrations; etc.

These notes provide a self-contained introduction to field theoretic methods employed in the study of classical and quantum phase transitions. Classical phase transitions occur at a regime where quantum fluctuations do not play an important role.

We review our research regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, and on the statistical physical modelling.
