Mathematical Physics & Statistical Mechanics

Mathematical Physics is the study of the mathematics associated with models of the physical world. One important and modern part of mathematical physics is the study of models in statistical mechanics.

Statistical mechanics involves the understanding of large complex systems by averaging the behaviour of the individual components. For example, one can understand the behaviour of a gas... more
