  • This course in Statistical Mechanics features problem sets and exams. Basic principles examined include: the laws of thermodynamics and the concepts of temperature, work, heat, and entropy; postulates of classical statistical mechanics, microcanonical, canonical, and grand canonical distributions; applications to lattice vibrations, ideal gas, photon gas; quantum statistical mechanics; Fermi and Bose systems; and interacting systems: cluster expansions, van der Waal's gas, and mean-field theory.

  • This site offers a list of sample questions that can be used when teaching basic probability concepts, probability distributions, data collection methods, inferential statistics, hypothesis testing, analysis of variance, regression analysis, or problem sensing related to descriptive statistics. Links to the answers are also provided. Application is not limited to business.

  • The applets in this section demonstrate basic issues of experimental design. The Poor Experimental Design ignores randomization rules and allows for increased experimental error. The Improved Experimental Design offers improvement over the first design by adding randomization and reducing experimental error. Both applets require the input of several participants. The purpose of the applets is to test the reaction times between a participant's dominant and non-dominant hand.
