Synopsis:

Structure of matter. Modeling of processes at various temporal/spatial levels of description. Fundamentals of probability theory (distribution functions, discrete/continuous variables, Stirling approximation). Introduction to statistical physics. Fluctuations. Boltzmann distribution (microstates, physical interpretation). Statistical ensembles (microcanonical, canonical, grandcanonical). Translational, rotational and vibrational partition functions. Elements of statistical thermodynamics. Determination of macroscopic characteristics of fluids and solid states (energy, heat capacity, potentials). Kinetic theory of gases (mean free path, pressure, effusivity).
