Lecture Notes in Statistical Mechanics
by Igor Vilfan
Publisher: The J. Stefan Institute 2002
Number of pages: 137
These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.

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.

These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system.

The 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.
