This book is an attempt to cover the gap between what is taught in a conventional statistical mechanics class and between what is necessary to understand current research. The aim is to introduce the basics of many-body physics to a wide audience.

General aspects of the Fluctuation-Dissipation Relation (FDR), and Response Theory are considered. We illustrate the relation between the relaxation of spontaneous fluctuations, and the response to an external perturbation.

We review our research regarding the dynamics and the statistical properties of earthquakes, mainly from a statistical physical viewpoint. Emphasis is put both on the physics of friction and fracture, and on the statistical physical modelling.
