  • Introduction To Statistical Mechanics

    By Prof.Girish S. Setlur   |   IIT Guwahati

    This is an introductory course in classical and quantum statistical mechanics which deals with the principle of ensembles, Classical, Fermi and Bose ideal gases, Pauli paramagnestim, Debye and Einstein’s theory of specific heat and the 1D Ising model.

     

    INTENDED AUDIENCE: M.Sc. and beginning Ph.D. students and other interested individuals

    PREREQUISITES:          Thermodynamics, Classical mechanics, Quantum mechanics

    COURSE LAYOUT

    Week 1: Review of thermodynamics, Hamiltonian mechanics of classical and quantum systems.

    INSTRUCTOR BIO

    Prof.Girish S. Setlur , he works in the field of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. He is interested in understanding and accounting for the properties of everyday bulk materials from a knowledge of the fundamental constituents of the substance and the fundamental physical laws governing those constituents. He was the inventor of a new technique called 'non-chiral bosonization' which is uniquely suited to study strongly inhomogeneous Luttinger liquids. He also invented the notion of a non-local particle hole creation operator and showed that it may be used to diagonalize interacting Fermi systems in any dimension. He is also interested in topological materials, specifically their nonlinear optical properties.
