Thermodynamic Limit in Statistical Physics
by A. L. Kuzemsky
Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 29
The thermodynamic limit in statistical thermodynamics of many-particle systems is an important but often overlooked issue in the various applied studies of condensed matter physics. To settle this issue, we review tersely the past and present disposition of thermodynamic limiting procedure in the structure of the contemporary statistical mechanics and our current understanding of this problem...

The book charts the development and theoretical analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. It connects molecular dynamics simulation with the mathematical theory to understand non-equilibrium steady states.

These are notes for quantum and statistical mechanics courses. Topics covered: master equations; non-equilibrium processes; fluctuation theorems; linear response theory; adiabatic transport; the Kubo formalism; scattering approach to mesoscopics.

These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.

A new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics is explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations.
