CH 433 Statistical Thermodynamics


(Also listed as PH 333)

The principles of thermodynamics are investigated from a modern statistical point of view based upon ensemble theory. This includes Maxwell-Boltzmann, Fermi-Dirac, and Bose-Einstein statistics, transport phenomena, thermal interactions, kinetic theory and applications to a variety of molecular systems.

Prerequisite: CH 102, PH 212, MA 202, CH 301 and CH 302; or permission of the Chair if taken concurrently with CH 302.
