**Introduction to Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics with Quantum Field**

by Takafumi Kita

**Publisher**: arXiv 2010**Number of pages**: 78

**Description**:

The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory by considering an ensemble of interacting identical bosons or fermions as an example. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics such as Feynman diagrams, the proper self-energy, and Dyson's equation.
