Welcome to the homepage of the "Basic Statistical Physics and Quantum Statistics" course. Here we present the essence of the course in statistical mechanics, starting from a microscopic description of matter:|
The overall topic is truly fascinating, since it shows in a beautiful way how what we experience in everyday life naturally emerges from the behaviour of matter down at
the central concept of entropy is introduced,
a connection with thermodynamical quantities is established, and
paradigmatic systems such as the ideal (quantum and classical) gases are studied.
the fundamental space, time, and energy scales.
