Properties

  • Semester hours: 3.0
  • Credits: 6.0
  • Type: VU Lecture and Exercise
  • Format: Presence

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to formulate the basics of thermodynamics and the extrapolation to statistical mechanics in phase space, to calculate with quantum statistics, to describe the properties of Fermi and Bose gases as well as to analyse photon and phonon statistics. Due to the accompanied exercises students learn to independently solve various problems in the field of thermodynamics and quantum statistical mechanics, to present their results in front of a small group and to discuss different aspects of the exercise.

Subject of course

  • historical overview
  • basics of thermodynamics
  • classical statistical mechanics in phase space
  • quantum statistical mechanics
  • ideal Bose- and Fermi gases
  • statistical mechanics of photons and phonons

Teaching methods

Lecture with strong and active students participation through questions and votings, accompanied tutorial during which lecture relevant problems are independently solved and presented on the board.

Mode of examination

Immanent

Additional information

Presentation of the VU: Tue, 5.3.2024 at 9:30 in FH HS6.
