Linear Response Theory

  • Peter Hertel
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


So far we have discussed bulk matter as a collection of material points which are always in thermodynamic equilibrium with neighboring material points. The parameters which determine the equilibrium state, such as temperature, pressure or chemical potentials, may vary from location to location and with time. They are, however, well defined for each material point.
