Approximation Methods

  • Wilhelm Brenig


As in [41.1], the third part of this volume will be devoted to examples of more microscopic calculations. Whereas equilibrium theory deals with partition functions and the corresponding thermodynamic functions, we will deal with the determination of the parameters in correlation functions, such as kinetic coefficients, transport coefficients and rate constants.
