Pure State Quantum Statistical Mechanics
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 84

Description:
The capabilities of a new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics are explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations. No additional randomness is added by hand and no assumptions about a priori probabilities are made, instead measure concentration results are used to justify the methods of Statistical Physics.

In this book we describe a new non-perturbative approach to the fermionic many-body problem, which can be considered as a generalization to arbitrary dimensions of the well-known bosonization technique for one-dimensional fermions.
