Winter term 2012/13
Lecture: Advanced statistical mechanics
This course will be concerned with several aspects of phenomenological thermodynamics and statistical physics. After introducing the basics of both fields as well as the fundamentals of the common statistical ensembles both in a classical and in a quantum description, we will turn to more sophisticated topics on lattice models and irreversible dynamics.
This regular seminar is concerned with all aspects of quantum many-body theory, quantum information and quantum optics. All interested participants are more than welcome.
