Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 72
We review some of the many recent activities on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, focusing on some of the fundamental issues and general aspects. Using the language of stochastic Markov processes, we emphasize general properties of the evolution of configurational probabilities, as described by master equations.

General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. We illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.

Dynamics of Ising models is a much studied phenomenon and has emerged as a rich field of present-day research. An important dynamical feature commonly studied is the quenching phenomenon below the critical temperature ...

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.
