Statistical Mechanics and the Physics of the Many-Particle Model Systems

Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 78
The development of methods of quantum statistical mechanics is considered in light of their applications to quantum solid-state theory. We discuss fundamental problems of the physics of magnetic materials and the methods of the quantum theory of magnetism, including the method of two-time temperature Green's functions, which is widely used in various physical problems of many-particle systems with interaction.

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.

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.
