Main Document

Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP) Applications 

written by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik

The Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP) Application is a self-contained file for the teaching of statistical and thermal physics.  The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials.  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

This application is an Open Source Physics curricular package.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the osp_stp.jar file will run the application if Java is installed.  Other resources are also available and can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or STP.
