Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics of Nanoscale Systems

PHYS-807

Lecturer(s) :

Jarzynski Christopher

Language:

English

Only this year

Summary

This course provides a brief introduction to the theoretical tools of nonequilibrium statistical phys-ics. Topics include the nanoscale description of the first and second laws of thermodynamics; far-from-equilibrium fluctuation theorems; the thermodynamics of information processing.

Content

The course will be organized around various approaches to modeling nonequilibrium dynamics at the microscopic level. The emergence of thermodynamic behavior will be explored within these approaches. A brief synopsis of the content is given here:
