About this book
Statistical Physics II introduces nonequilibrium theories of statistical mechanics from the viewpoint of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. Emphasis is placed on relaxation from nonequilibrium to equilibrium states, the response of a system to an external disturbance, and general problems involved in deriving a macroscopic physical process from more basic underlying processes. Fundamental concepts and methods are stressed, rather than the numerous individual applications.
