Eighth Lecture Advanced Statistical Mechanics

I’m posting back in time again, had no occasion to do it on correct date

I managed to repay my debt and to finish the previous lecture, and still round up the stuff of the eighth one. Good me. The stuff therefore had to be easy-going, and I skipped many details I would tell if I had more time. I’m happy I did so: it made it a better lecture.

We have discussed the relation between quantum mechanics and (1d) statistical physics, important and fascinating subject. The students were not abundant. What surprised me most is their reaction on a photograph I used when mentioning path integrals. That supposed to be funny and was met with stone faces. Was I not supposed to joke about path integrals?
