Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics offers a graduate level treatment of time dependent phenomena in condensed matter physics. Conventional ideas of linear response theory and kinetic theory are treated in detail. The general emphasis is placed on the development of generalized Langevin equations for treating nonlinear behaviour in a wide variety of systems. A complete introduction to the dynamic renormalization group is presented.

This is the third volume of a set of texts by the same author. Two books of this set have already been published (Fluctuations, Order, and Defects; Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics). The present volume is self–contained and can stand alone from the preceding volumes.

From the contents:

  • Systems out of Equilibrium
  • Time Dependent Phenomena in Condensed Matter Systems: Relationship of Theory and Experiment
  • Dynamic Critical Phenomena and Broken Symmetry
  • Nonlinear Systems
  • Unstable Growth
