MOOC: Advanced statistical physics
We explore statistical physics in both classical and open quantum systems. Additionally, we will cover probabilistic data analysis that is extremely useful in many applications.
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.
The course opens on 1 February 2013 in self-pace mode. Enrol now!
