The Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP) Launcher Package contains read-to-run computer models and curricular materials for the teaching of statistical and thermal physics. You can choose from many different simulations and calculations ranging from probability distributions to Ising models.

A PDF of the textbook to accompany these simulations is available in the ComPADRE STP Collection https://www.compadre.org/stp/.

The STP Launcher Package is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java program. Double clicking the osp_stp.jar file will run the application if Java is installed. The source code for all programs in this package can be found by searching ComPADRE for the STP Eclipse workspace.

Please note that this resource requires
at least version 1.5 of
Java.
