In this course basic topics in the classical and quantum statistical physics are covered. Students then can study advanced topics in many body systems.

Topics are as follows:

  • A review on probability and statistics
  • Microcanonical ensembles
  • Canonical ensembles
  • The grand canonical ensemble
  • Quantum statistics
  • Ideal Bose systems
  • Ideal Fermi systems
  • Ising model
