The criteria used to verify the knowledge and skills acquired are: Teaching Mode Traditional lectures. Search Course unit catalogue. Scaling theory and Kadanoff block spin argument. Yeomans, Statistical mechanics of Phase transitions.
Second cycle degree courses. Foundations of Quantum Statistical Mechanic s – Review of quantum mechanics: Some classes will be devoted to exercises that students will solve under the teacher’s supervision. Assessment methods Oral exam.
Office hours See the website of Elisa Ercolessi. We will study the theoretical bases of classical and quantum statistical mechanics. At the end of the course, the student knows the statistical laws that rule the k.hung behavior of macroscopic systems with a high number of particles and is able to describe the principal applications to both classical and quantum gases and to magnetic systems.
Textbooks and optional supplementary readings.
