[Texts]## 82: Statistical mechanics, structure of matter |

Statistical mechanics, structure of matter: study of large-scale systems of particles, including stochastic systems and moving or evolving systems. Specific types of matter studied include fluids, crystals, metals, and other solids.

- 82B: Equilibrium statistical mechanics
- 82C: Time-dependent statistical mechanics (dynamic and nonequilibrium)
- 82D: Applications to specific types of physical systems
