Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions J. M. Yeomans
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA




Now that we know what order parameters are (see last lecture), we'll use the order parameter of a phase to construct the Landau free energy. Swiss-born American, contributed to condensed matter theory, especially involving statistical mechanics: phase transitions; derivation of hydrodynamical equations from microscopic kinetics; statistical mechanics of plasmas. Probability theory, random processes, stochastic analysis, statistical mechanics and stochastic simulation. Critical phenomena are what happens near a phase transition in statistical mechanics (stat mech is thermodynamics' sophisticated sibling). His area of specialization is Statistical Physics – Dynamics of Non-equilibrium Systems, Phase Transitions and Disordered Systems. Thermodynamics – Laws of thermodynamics, Heat engines, Entropy, Thermodynamic potentials, Phase transitions. Quote: my plan had been to work on a transition effects class which i'm tentatively calling Phase. Yeomans, which is less technical. This classic text, first published in 3993, is designed for graduate physics courses in statistical mechanics. Statistical mechanics – Classical statistics, Fermi-Dirac and Bose – Einstein statistics. Professor John Aston Dr Ben Graham, Statistical mechanics and phase transition, the Isling model.

Boltzmann's formula S=In[W(E)] defines the microcanonical ensemble. There is also a discussion in "Statistical Mechanics of Phase Transitions", by J. The usual textbooks on statistical mechanics start with the microensemble but rather quickly switch to the canonical emsemble introduced by Gibbs. It is quite interesting in that now the statistical mechanics course is provided in Engineering. The biggest intersection between statistical mechanics and traditional theoretical computer science is in looking at phase-transitions in the \mathsf{NP}\mathrm{-complete} problem 3SAT.
