# Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics I,II,III (1399-1400)

This is a three-semester course on Thermodynamics and Statistical
Mechanics which is supposed to be covered in the following order:

Semester I-Fall of 1399: Thermodynamics,

Semester II-Winter of 1399 and Spring of 1400: Statistical Mechanics,

Semester III-Fall of 1400: Advanced Statistical Mechanics.

# The textbook for semester I: Thermodynamics

I mainly follow the following textbook:Thermodynamics and an Introduction to Thermostatics, by Herbert Callen

Contrary to most other texts which are inspired by engineering (engines, refrigrators, etc), this book constructs Thermodynamic on a rigorous physical and mathematical axiomatic sytem.

# Grading system:

In the beginning of the
course, you are
supposed to choose
your team (2 or 3 students). Each team is supposed to collaborate with
each other on each of the problems, type the solutions with Latex
and deliver them in pdf format. There is no midterm or final
exam and your final grade is based on your
homework sets and your activity in the class i.e. genuine contribution
in discussions.# Online Class Schedule:

Time:10:30 AM-12:00 AM Sunday and TuesdayPlace:https://vclass.ecourse.sharif.edu/ch/vahid.karimipour

The first session is on Sunday 30th of Shahrivar.
