|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Engineering (pre 2015)
Equilibrium statistical mechanics/ensemble theory. Classical and Quantum Statistics.
Applications eg ideal gases, heat capacity, magnetism, Bose-Einstein condensation,
Fermi-Dirac gases. If time permits, introduction to non-equilibrium statistical mechanics
and transport theory.
- understanding of equilibrium statistical mechanics/ensemble theory;
