Relativistic Kinetic Theory: An Introduction
by Olivier Sarbach, Thomas Zannias
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 30
We present a brief introduction to the relativistic kinetic theory of gases with emphasis on the underlying geometric and Hamiltonian structure of the theory. Our formalism starts with a discussion on the tangent bundle of a Lorentzian manifold of arbitrary dimension...

The theory of large deviations deals with the probabilities of rare events that are exponentially small as a function of some parameter, e.g., the number of random components of a system or the time over which a stochastic system is observed.

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.

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.

Dynamics of Ising models is a much studied phenomenon and has emerged as a rich field of present-day research. An important dynamical feature commonly studied is the quenching phenomenon below the critical temperature ...
