In physics , statistical mechanics is a mathematical framework that applies statistical methods and probability theory to large assemblies of microscopic entities. It does not assume or postulate any natural laws, but explains the macroscopic behavior of nature from the behavior of such ensembles. Statistical mechanics arose out of the development of classical thermodynamics , a field for which it was successful in explaining macroscopic physical properties such as temperature , pressure , heat capacity , in terms of microscopic parameters that fluctuate about average values, characterized by probability distributions.

Peter V. E-mail: p. The purpose of statistical mechanics is to provide a route to the calculation of macroscopic properties of matter from their constituent microscopic components. It is well known that the macrostates emerge as ensemble averages of microstates. However, this is more often stated than implemented in computer simulation studies. Here we consider foundational aspects of statistical mechanics which are overlooked in most textbooks and research articles that purport to compute macroscopic behaviour from microscopic descriptions based on classical mechanics and show how due attention to these issues leads in directions which have not been widely appreciated in the field of molecular dynamics simulation. One such question concerns the nature of time, in particular how to make sense of the fact that while the microscopic description of matter is time-reversal symmetric, macroscopic behaviour is temporally asymmetric.

As a global organisation, we, like many others, recognize the significant threat posed by the coronavirus. During this time, we have made some of our learning resources freely accessible. Our distribution centres are open and orders can be placed online. Do be advised that shipments may be delayed due to extra safety precautions implemented at our centres and delays with local shipping carriers. Complex systems that bridge the traditional disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science can be studied at an unprecedented level of detail using increasingly sophisticated theoretical methodology and high-speed computers. The aim of this book is to prepare burgeoning users and developers to become active participants in this exciting and rapidly advancing research area by uniting for the first time, in one monograph, the basic concepts of equilibrium and time-dependent statistical mechanics with the modern techniques used to solve the complex problems that arise in real-world applications.

Ты нашла ключ. Сьюзан покачала головой. Стратмор наморщил лоб и прикусил губу. Мысли его метались.

*Христа ради, Мидж. Ну хватит. Телефон заливался еще секунд пятнадцать и наконец замолк.*

Беккер поднялся над безжизненным телом девушки. Шаги приближались. Он услышал дыхание. Щелчок взведенного курка. - Adids, - прошептал человек и бросился на него подобно пантере.

Хейл выжидал. Стояла полная тишина, и он внимательно прислушался. Ничего. Вроде бы на нижней ступеньке никого. Может, ему просто показалось.

*Все данные, свидетельствующие о том, кто чем владел, должны были исчезнуть навсегда.*

Сьюзан взяла себя в руки и быстро подошла к монитору Хейла. Протянула руку и нажала на кнопку. Экран погас.
