The aim of the course is to present basic ideas and methods od statistical physics. After the course, the students are able to analyse and understand the behavior of simple systems described statistical physics models, and interconnect it to thermodynamics.

Lectures

Seminars

Tutorials

The content of the course is focused on basic ideas and methods of physical system description using mathematical statistics. The basic classical and quantum distributions are derived, and the interconnection with thermodynamics is presented. The applications of statistical physics methods are demonstrated on simple systems.
