Title  Nonequilibrium statistical physics 
Author(s)  Gerd Ropke 
Publication  Verlag, John Wiley and Sons, 2013. 
Description  xiii, 382p. 
Abstract Note  Authored by a wellknown expert in the field of nonequilibrium statistical physics, this book is a coherent presentation of the subject suitable for masters and PhD students, as well as postdocs in physics and related disciplines.
Starting from a general discussion of irreversibility and entropy, the method of nonequilibrium statistical operator is presented as a general concept. Stochastic processes are introduced as a necessary prerequisite to describe the evolution of a nonequilibrium state. Different standard approaches such as master equations, kinetic equations and linear response theory, are derived after special assumptions. This allows for an insight into the problems of nonequilibrium physics, a discussion of the limits of the approaches, and suggestions for improvements. The method of thermodynamic Green's function is outlined that allows for the systematic quantum statistical treatment of manybody systems. Applications and typical examples are given, as well as fully worked problems.

Title  Nonequilibrium statistical physics 
Author(s)  Gerd Ropke 
Publication  Weinheim, WileyVCH, 2013. 
Description  xiii, 382p. 
Abstract Note  Authored by one of the top theoretical physicists in Germany, and a wellknown authority in the field, this is the only coherent presentation of the subject suitable for masters and PhD students, as well as postdocs in physics and related disciplines.

Title  Basic space plasma physics 
Author(s)  Wolfgang Baumjohann;Rudolf A. Treumann 
Edition  Rev. ed. 
Publication  New Jersey, Imperial College Press, 2012. 
Description  xvi, 479p. 
Abstract Note  This textbook begins with a description of the Earth's plasma environment, followed by the derivation of single particle motions in electromagnetic fields, with applications to the Earth's magnetosphere. Also discussed are the origin and effects of collisions and conductivities, formation of the ionosphere, magnetospheric convection and dynamics, and solar windmagnetosphere coupling. The second half of the book presents a more theoretical foundation of plasma physics, starting with kinetic theory. Introducing moments of distribution function permits the derivation of the fluid equations, followed by an analysis of fluid boundaries, with the Earth's magnetopause and bow shock as examples, and finally, fluid and kinetic theory are applied to derive the relevant wave modes in a plasma. This revised edition seamlessly integrates new sections on magnetopause reconstruction, as well as instability theory and thermal fluctuations based on new developments in space physics. Applications such as the important problems of collisionless reconnection and collisionless shocks are covered, and some problems have also been included at the end of each chapter.

Title  Kinetic view of statistical physics 
Author(s)  Pavel L. Krapivsky;Sidney Redner;Eli BenNaim 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010. 
Description  xv, 488p. 
Abstract Note  book explores some of the core phenomena in nonequilibrium statistical physics. It focuses on the development and application of theoretical methods to help students develop their problemsolving skills. The book begins with microscopic transport processes: diffusion, collisiondriven phenomena, and exclusion. It then presents the kinetics of aggregation, fragmentation and adsorption, where the basic phenomenology and solution techniques are emphasized. The following chapters cover kinetic spin systems, both from a discrete and a continuum perspective, the role of disorder in nonequilibrium processes, hysteresis from the nonequilibrium perspective, the kinetics of chemical reactions, and the properties of complex networks.
