Applications of the thermodynamic and statistical mechanics of small systems range from molecular biology to micro-mechanics, including models of nano-transport, Brownian motors, and (living or artificial) self-propelled organisms.

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.

The authors discuss the development of basic kinetic approaches to more complex and contemporary systems. Among the large menu of stochastic and irreversible processes, we chose the ones that we consider to be among the most instructive.

A text on two related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book brings some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.
