This course is in all assigned curricula part of the STEOP.
This course is in at least 1 assigned curriculum part of the STEOP.

2016S, VO, 2.0h, 4.0EC

Properties

  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 4.0
  • Type: VO Lecture

Aim of course

Based on the knowledge obtained in the course Statistical Physics I the students are familiarized with the applications of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.

Subject of course

Stochastic processes, transport theory (Boltzmann's equation); Phase transitions and critical phenomena; computer simulations

Additional information

The lecture is held in close cooperation with the Statistical Physics II Exercise course.
The students are invited to attend the combined lecture-exercise classes.
However, both courses can also be taken independent of each other.

First meeting Tue 01.03.2016, 08:30 FH HS 6

Please sign in for the lecture till March 8th, 2016.

Further details and the exact dates and times of each lecture are summarized in the file "StatPhysII_Uebersicht_SS2016.pdf" (Communication/Documents).
