Main Document

Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP) Applications 

written by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik

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.
