Digital- & Präsenz-basierter Kurs

classroom language
The students will learn the principles of Statistical Mechanics, and the theoretical description of statistical-physics systems. They will be able to apply those principles to solve relevant problems.
Knowledge of Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics and Thermodynamics
structure / topics / contents
1. Principles of statistical physics (pure and statistical states; entropy and probability theory; ensembles; connection to thermodynamics)
2. Ideal systems (classical gas; Boltzmann, Bose and Fermi gases; phonons; black-body radiation)
3. Statistical models for real systems in thermodynamic equilibrium and phase transitions (spin models with interaction; order parameters; molecular field approximation; Ginzburg-Landau theory)
4. Introduction to systems outside of equilibrium
