5.70[J] Statistical Thermodynamics


Class Info

Develops classical equilibrium statistical mechanical concepts for application to chemical physics problems. Basic concepts of ensemble theory formulated on the basis of thermodynamic fluctuations. Examples of applications include Ising models, lattice models of binding, ionic and non-ionic solutions, liquid theory, polymer and protein conformations, phase transition, and pattern formation. Introduces computational techniques with examples of liquid and polymer simulations.

This class has 5.60 as a prerequisite.

5.70[J] will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by B. Zhang.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
