Non-Equilibrium Formalism

  • Jonas Fransson
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 809)


We go deeper into the general description of non-equilibrium physics, both within the occupation number approach and by means of non-equilibrium Green function. We derive expressions for the tunneling current through complexes of interacting systems coupled to thermal baths, or leads. We discuss concepts of time-dependent and stationary processes.
