# On quantum statistical mechanics; A study guide

@article{Majewski2016OnQS, title={On quantum statistical mechanics; A study guide}, author={Wladyslaw A. Majewski}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2016} }

These notes are intended as an introduction to a study of applications of noncommutative calculus to quantum statistical Physics. Centered on noncommutative calculus we describe the physical concepts and mathematical structures appearing in the analysis of large quantum systems, and their consequences. These include the emergence of algebraic approach and the necessity of employment of infinite dimensional structures. As an illustration, a quantization of stochastic processes, new formalism for…
