STATISTICAL AND THERMAL PHYSICS

This is an introductory graduate course in Statistical and Thermal Physics with the emphasis on the basic concepts in equilibrium statistical physics and its connection to classical thermodynamics. The formal prerequisite to attend the course is an undergraduate course in statistical and thermal physics. However, this can be discussed.

The text book is Fundamentals of Statistical and Thermal Physics, Author: Federick Reif, ISBN: 978-1-57766-612-7. The course is divided into two parts of 5 academic points each. There will be about 10 lectures of two hours each, one per week, during each part of the course. One part of the examination is a set of mandatory homework problems that should be handed in during the course. There will also be an oral exam after each part of the course.

Statistical and Thermal Physics, part I (TFYY61)

Statistical and Thermal Physics, part II (TFYY83)
