This advanced level textbook approaches the world of statistical physics from thepoint of view of simple models suitable for numerical realization. Theory is presented and backed up withsimulations results and provisions made for students to develop and implementtheir own simulations to transfer the theory of molecular simulations intocomputational models. The text is further extended with videoresults and includes numerous problems with solutions.
Principles of Statistical Physics and Numerical Modeling Hardback edition by Professor Valeriy A Ryabov
Statistical Mechanics: Problems with Solutions contains detailed model solutions to the exerciseproblems formulated in the companion Lecture Notes volume. In many cases, thesolutions include result discussions that enhance the lecture material. Forreader's convenience, the problem assignments are reproduced in this volume.
This book gives the definitive mathematical answer to what thermodynamics really is: a variational calculus applied to probability distributions. Extending Gibbs's notion of ensemble, the Author imagines the ensemble of all possible probability distributions and assigns probabilities to them by selection rules that are fairly general. The calculus of the most probable distribution in the ensemble...
Born out of a major international dialogue held at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, Italy, this collection of essays presents innovative and provocative arguments about the claims of universal knowledge schemes and the different aesthetic and material forms in which such claims have been made and executed.
Schneider and Sagan organize their argument in a highly accessible manner, moving from descriptions of the basic physics behind energy flow to the organization of complex systems to the role of energy in life to the final section, which applies their concept of energy flow to politics, economics, and even human health.
This textbook presents an introduction to the use of probability in physics, treating introductory ideas of both statistical physics and of statistical inference, as well the importance of probability in information theory, quantum mechanics, and stochastic processes, in a unified manner.
How can fundamental particles exist as waves in the vacuum? These are some of the central questions that have intriguing answers in Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Unfortunately, these theories are highly mathematical, so that most people - even many scientists - are not able to fully grasp their meaning.
This book looks at the role of probability in modern science. Using the most exciting developments in fundamental physics as examples, it shows the centrality of uncertainty and incomplete knowledge. Written by an insider, and using non-technical language, it is an attempt to explain how science really works.
This thesis uses the tools of quantum information science to uncover fascinating new insights about the intersection of quantum theory and relativity. It is divided into three self-contained parts, the first of which employs detector models to investigate how the information content of quantum fields depends on spacetime curvature and global spacetime topology. The behavior of Unruh-DeWitt...
Assuming a basic background of quantum and statistical mechanics, this book will help readers familiarize with the basic tools of open quantum systems.
Open quantum systems is the study of quantum dynamics of the system of interest, taking into account the effects of the ambient environment.
