Chapter 9
Quantum Statistics of Ideal Gases
NOTE! Some of these files don't contain some special symbols, like a dot over a variable to indicate a time derivative (& a double dot to indicate a second time derivative) & an arrow over a variable to indicate a 3d vector. These were hand written in by me in the transparencies used in class. If you download these files, it is up to YOU, the student, to supply these missing pieces! Sorry!
