**Pure State Quantum Statistical Mechanics**

by

**Christian Gogolin**-

**arXiv**

A new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics is explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations.
