Digital- & Präsenz-basierter Kurs

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. Basic concepts of Thermodynamics and Quantum Mechanics
2. Principles of statistical physics (pure and statistical states; entropy and probability theory; ensembles; connection to thermodynamics)
3. Ideal systems (spin systems; Boltzmann, Bose and Fermi gases; examples)
4. Statistical models for real systems in thermodynamic equilibrium and phase transitions (spin models with interaction; order parameters; molecular field approximation; Ginzburg-Landau theory)
5. Thermodynamic of systems outside of equilibrium (theory of linear response; causality and analytical structure of response functions; fluctuation-dissipation theorem)
