Abstract Positive Commutator Method in Non-Equilibrium St at ist ical Mechanics Ph.D. Marco Merkli Department of Mathematics University of Toronto The main goal of this thesis is to develop the method of positive commu- tators in the contest of quantum statistical mechanics.

We extend this method to positive temperatures, i.e. to non-equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics. We use the positive commutator technique to give an alternative proof of a fundamental Author: Marco Merkli.

We extend the method of positive commutators, which was very successfully applied to zero temperature problems, to positive temperatures, i.e. to nonequilibrium quantum statistical mechanics.

Using this technique, we give another proof of a fundamental property of large quantum systems, called Return to Cited by: 5. The method of positive commutators, developed for zero temperature problems over the last twenty years, has been an essential tool in the spectral analysis of Hamiltonians in quantum mechanics.

Statistical mechanics is one of the pillars of modern is necessary for the fundamental study of any physical system that has many degrees of approach is based on statistical methods, probability theory and the microscopic physical laws.

It can be used to explain the thermodynamic behaviour of large systems.

variational methods, or numerical methods etc. So, textbooks on equilibrium statistical mechanics all look more or less the same. The situation is very different in non equilibrium statistical mechanics: there one finds a variety of approaches, whose connections are far.

Written by the winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, this groundbreaking monograph is an essential work for researchers and graduate students. Topics include the Liouville equation, anharmonic solids, Brownian motion, weakly coupled gases, scattering theory and short-range forces, approach to equilibrium in ionized gases, general kinetic equations, and other topics.

We consider non-equilibrium open statistical systems, subject to potentials and to external “heat baths” (hb) at thermal equilibrium at temperature T (either with ab initio dissipation or without it).

Boltzmann’s classical equilibrium distributions generate, as Gaussian weight functions in momenta, orthogonal polynomials in momenta (the position-independent Hermite polynomialsHn’s Cited by: 2. The general method of nonequilibrium ensembles is used to describe kinetic processes in classical and quantum systems.

The presentation of a wide range of nonequilibrium phenomena in many-particle systems is based on the unified approach, which is a natural extension of the method of Gibbs ensembles to the non-equilibrium case.

This is an attempt to deliver, within a couple of hours, a few key-concepts of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The material covered by the notes is sometimes a bit wider in scope and often more detailed than a presentation can be. The goal is to develop some. This theory goes beyond the scope of this book1 For our purposes it is sufficient to note that if Xis a Gaussian random variable in the Hilbert space HE with inner product () then hX,fi is a scalar Gaussian random variable with mean and variance hX,fi = 0, and E hX,fihX,hi = β−1hf,hi.
