CME 512 - Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics

Description
This course provides in depth graduate level instruction in non-equilibriumthermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Topics include a qualitative comparison of equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems, the description of thermodynamic ensembles, the concept of system fluctuations, Brownian motion, fluctuation-dissipation processes, Markov processes, Chapman-Kolmogorov equation, the Fokker-Planck equation, the Einstein-Smoluchowski equation, stochastic processes and boundary conditions, auto-catalytic chemical reactions, bistability, transport processes, relaxation time approximation, stability of far-from equilibriumsystems; pattern formation and self-assembly.
