This is the home page of the course "Statistical Physics: Concepts and Applications", that I teach this year for the first time to the ICFP first-year Master students at ENS. Tutorial sessions are assured by Maurizio Fagotti, JRC laureate researcher at the ENS Department of Physics, and world-wide expert in Statistical Mechanics.

Please check out the 2016 lecture course
