These are the notes for lectures on Kinetic Theory and Statistical
Physics, being part of the 2nd-year course at Oxford. Topics covered includes:
Basic Thermodynamics, Kinetic Theory, From Local to Global Equilibrium
(Transport Equations) , Kinetic Calculation of Transport Coefficients,
Foundations of Statistical Mechanics , Statistical Mechanics of Simple Systems ,
Open Systems, Quantum Gases, Thermodynamics of Real Gases.

This book covers the
following topics: Foundations Of The Hypothesis, Pressure Of Gases, Maxwell's
Law, Ideal And Actual Gases, Molecular And Atomic Energy, Molecular Free Paths,
Viscosity Of Gases, Diffusin Of Gases and Conduction Of Heat.

The main
object of this book is to formulate a Kinetic Theory of certain properties of
matter, which shall apply equally well to matter in any state. The book has also
been brought up to date in matters not connected with molecular collision, and
has been treated in a way so that the results are connected as directly as
possible with the results of experiment.

This is a graduate course on topics in
non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. It was given to masters students and PhD
students in the fall of 2012. The full set of lecture notes are a little shy of
100 pages. They can be downloaded below. This covers the following: Things
Bumping Into Other Things, Kinetic Theory, Stochastic Processes, Linear
