The lectures on Statistical Mechanics aim to provide a theoretical foundation for statistical mechanics, including both classical and quantum distributions. In the Project, students will spend about 4 hours per week working on a research experiment or theoretical project supervised by a researcher. The aim is for students to acquire an understanding of the nature of research by carrying out a project under the supervision of a researcher, and as part of a research group.
Nineteen 1-hour lectures and 4 hours/week with a research group.
One 1.5-hour exam, assignments, project report and presentation (100%).
An Introduction to Thermal Physics, David V. Schroeder.
