Overview

This course is designed to use fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics in simple real world problems. Starting from simple molecular models of systems like solids, liquids and gases, the students would learn how to obtain their thermodynamic properties that are usually measured in experiments.

Syllabus

Week 1: Review of mathematical methods and classical thermodynamics

Week 2: Introduction to micro- and macroscopic states, ensembles

Week 3: Microcanonical ensemble and application to simple non-interacting systems
