In this course, we will first introduce the fundamental postulates and concepts in modern statistical physics and establish a connection of these concepts to the concepts in thermo-dynamics. We will also cover some basic tools in quantum statistical mechanics and phase transitions based on Ginzberg-Landau theory and renormalization group theory.
