Inhalt This course is devoted to the theoretical description of transport and fluctuation phenomena in many-particle systems close to thermal equilibrium. Various approaches are discussed and applied to the transport of charge and heat. Topics include:

  • thermodynamics of irreversible processes, Onsager relations, theory of fluctuations
  • stochastic processes, Brownian motion, Langevin equation
  • linear response theory, dynamical susceptibilities
  • Drude theory of simple metals, thermoelectric effects
  • Boltzmann theory for diluted gases, conservation laws, electron-phonon scattering
