The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics.

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 instructive.

A brief introduction to the technique of Monte Carlo simulations in statistical physics. The topics covered include statistical ensembles random and pseudo random numbers, random sampling techniques, importance sampling, Markov chain, etc.

This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The goal is to develop some ideas of contemporary research. Many of the ideas are illustrated or even introduced by examples.
