This is a great book - it's long, but it reads well and flows with good explanatory text. The only downside is that it doesn't provide much in the way of quantum annotation or explanations (includes some quantum mechanics and wavefunctions (in performing statistical situations, such as classical phase systems versus wavefunction/conjugate /5. The book contains an exposition of very effective and powerful approach for practical applications techniques in quantum statistical mechanics All backgrounds, main mathematical approaches, techniques and derivations are presented in much detail that makes it possible to recommend the book as a manual for young researchersBrand: World Scientific Publishing Company.

This book establishes the foundations of non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics in order to support students and academics in developing and building their understanding.

Statistical mechanics is one of the pillars of modern is necessary for the fundamental study of any physical system that has many degrees of approach is based on statistical methods, probability theory and the microscopic physical laws.. It can be used to explain the thermodynamic behaviour of large systems. This branch of statistical mechanics, which . This book is the fruit of for many years teaching the introduction to quan-tum mechanics to second-year students of physics at Oxford University. We have tried to convey to students that it is the use of probability amplitudes rather than probabilities that .
