**Fundamental Kinetic Processes**

by E. Ben-Naim, P. L. Krapivsky, S. Redner

**Publisher**: Boston University 2008

**Description**:

The authors discuss the development of basic kinetic approaches to more complex and contemporary systems. Among the large menu of stochastic and irreversible processes, we chose the ones that we consider to be among the most important and most instructive in leading to generic understanding. The target audience is graduate students with a one-course background in equilibrium statistical physics.
