JCP322H5 • Statistical Mechanics

Description

Statistical methods for bridging the quantum behaviour of atoms and molecules to their macroscopic properties in solid, liquid and gaseous states. The course introduces partition functions, canonical ensembles, and their application to thermodynamic properties such as entropy, heat capacity, equilibrium constants, reaction rates, and Bose-Einstein/Fermi-Dirac distribution functions.
