Elective courses, M2 First semester, courses
Advanced statistical mechanics
This course deals with advanced statistical physics topics and techniques. Most of the themes treated are subjects of current research. For example, I revisit the conditions under which Gibbs-Boltzmann equilibrium establishes, or the impossibility of reaching equilibrium due to conservation laws, long-range interactions, frustration or quenched disorder. In all these cases I present alternatives to Gibbs-Boltzmann equilibrium and the special features brought about in static descriptions of some concrete problems.
