PHY 441: Statistic Thermodynamics
Prerequisite: PHY 213; Pre or Co-Requisite:PHY 341; or permission of instructor
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
The laws of thermodynamics and their interpretation based on the microscopic behavior. Entropy and probability, equilibrium, reversibility, thermodynamic functions, phase changes, and quantum statistics are studied. Applications to problems in solid state physics are examined.
