Statistical Mechanics University of Sao Paulo
This course is essential for those who intend to work in many body systems, in order to describe observable macroscopic quantities from the microscopic description of the system.
To introduce the basis of statistical mechanics, with a view to their application in different areas, such as magnetism, biology, nuclear physics, etc.
