**Non-Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics**

by Gunnar Pruessner

**Publisher**: Imperial College London 2011**Number of pages**: 51

**Description**:

This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The goal is to develop some ideas of contemporary research. Many of the ideas are illustrated or even introduced by examples.
