Learning Outcomes
It is expected that the students will understand the statistical nature of the the thermodynamic - and more general physical- phenomena. They will learn the three basic statistics (microcanonical, canonical, grandcanonical distributions), as well as their applications to physical systems.
General Competences
• Apply knowledge in practice
• Work autonomously
• Work in teams
• Be critical and self-critical
• Advance free, creative and causative thinking
