Book DescriptionFrom the Preface: "The purpose of this book is to present and apply a language and to discuss methods which make it very convenient to exploit such analogies, and which are uniquely suited to describe and explain non-equilibrium phenomena in a rich variety of many-particle systems: the language of time correlation functions and linear response theory."

Author Biography - Dieter Forster
Dieter Forster is a professor of physics at Temple University in Philadelphia. He was born in Southern Germany and received his "diplom" in physics at the University of Stuttgart in 1964, working under Hermann Haken. He then moved to Harvard University where he completed his Ph.D. in 1969 under Paul C. Martin. He has worked at Columbia University, the University of Chicago, and as a visiting professor, at the Technical University of Munich, the University of Stuttgart, and the National University of Mexico. He has taught physics courses on many levels but takes a special interest in conceptual level courses designed for students not entering the physics profession. His research has focused on the fluctuation theory of liquid structure and on phase transitions.
