Principles and application of thermodynamics to reversible and irreversible processes, with derivation from statistical postulates applied to the microscopic behavior of large systems at or near equilibrium. Topics include equilibrium thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and kinetic theory of gases.
- To understand fundamental concepts of thermal and statistical physics, as well as the connection of microscopic degrees of freedom to macroscopic phenomena. - To acquire the ability to derive macroscopic observables from microscopic physics and to derive and make use of the relationships of these macroscopic observables.
