Course description

Advanced Statistical Physics

This course covers non-equilibrium statistical processes and the treatment of fluctuation dissipation relations by Einstein, Boltzmann and Kubo. Moreover, the fundamentals of Markov processes, stochastic differential and Fokker Planck equations, mesoscopic master equation, etc will be treated in detail. Prior knowledge of statistical physics is highly recommended but not required.
