CURRENT SEMESTER

NON EQUILIBRIUM STATISTICAL PHYSICS 1
Fall 2017


There are many textbooks. One of the skills to be learned in graduate school is to use many books. Therefore, we will not follow any one particular book. We will take bits and pieces from more or less every one of the books listed below.

Perhaps even more importantly, there are many subjects which are not covered in any textbooks (not yet!), therefore, we will have to study many original papers.
