​​​​​​​​​Welcome to: FYSB12 Physics: Basic Statistical Physics and Quantum Statistics, 7.5 credits

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 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 overall topic is truly fascinating, since it shows in a beautiful way how what we experience in everyday life naturally emerges from the behavi​our of matter down at
the fundamental space, time, and energy scales.
