The criteria used to verify the knowledge and skills acquired are: Textbooks and optional supplementary readings. Peliti, Statistical Mechanics in a Nutshell. Give now Alma orienta Job placement. Ginzburg criterium and upper critical dimension. Software or applications used. Please note that some topics may vary Spontaneous symmetry breaking for continuous symmetry. Questions will cover both the theoretical part and the exercises analysed in class. Some classes will be devoted to exercises that students will solve under the teacher’s supervision.
Critical points, order parameters and critical exponents. See the website of Elisa Ercolessi.
After completing the course the student should be able to understand and explain the basic concepts and the use of advanced techniques in statistical mechanics. Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Course Timetable from Sep 25, to Dec 20, Search Course unit catalogue.
