Introduction to Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics with Quantum Field
by Takafumi Kita
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 78
The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory by considering an ensemble of interacting identical bosons or fermions as an example. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics such as Feynman diagrams, the proper self-energy, and Dyson's equation.

Written by J. Willard Gibbs, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles.

We give a self-contained introduction to the quantum field theory for many-particle systems, using functional methods throughout. We focus in general on the behavior of so-called quantum liquids, i.e., quantum gases and liquids.
by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik - Princeton University Press
A text on two related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book brings some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.

This paper reviews some selected approaches to the description of transport properties in crystalline and disordered metallic systems. A detailed formulation of the electron transport processes in metallic systems within a model approach is given.
