**Pure State Quantum Statistical Mechanics**

by Christian Gogolin

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 84

**Description**:

The capabilities of a new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics are 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. No additional randomness is added by hand and no assumptions about a priori probabilities are made, instead measure concentration results are used to justify the methods of Statistical Physics.
