Amazing course for statistical thermodynamics. Learned the origins of specific heat for solids and how they are calculated.

Great course to learn about Dense Gases, Liquids, and Solid. I highly recommend this course.

From the lesson

Thermodynamic Stability

As the density is increased, there is a transition to the liquid state. We explore whether this transition is smooth or abrupt by examining the stability of a thermodynamic system to small perturbations. We also explore Gibb's phase rule.
