After completing the course the student should be able to understand and explain the basic concepts and the use of advanced techniques in statistical mechanics. In short the mecfanica of the program can be summarised as follows: Peliti, Statistical Mechanics in a Nutshell. Foundations of Classical Statistical Mechanics – Review of k.hyang and mechanics. Theoretical topics are fully explained in class by the teacher.
Ginzburg criterium and upper critical dimension. The verification of the acquired knowledge takes place through a common written test with exercises to be solved analytically and open questions on basic concepts. Give now Alma orienta Job placement. We will study the theoretical bases of classical and quantum statistical mechanics. Pathria, Statistical Mechanics, Butterworth.

Textbooks and optional supplementary readings K. Phase transitions and spontaneous symmetry breaking. Planned learning activities and teaching methods: In this way we should be able to test the knowledge, the scientific vocabulary, the ability to synthesis and critical discussion acquired during the course.
The second part of the exam will be oral and will be based on a discussion on the various topics discussed in class. Search Course unit catalogue. Second zahichelli degree courses. Entropy-energy argument and the lower critical dimension. Analytical tools to solve spins model in 1D, transfer matrix formalisms.
