|Title:||On Quantum Microcanonical Equilibrium|
|Keywords:||Quantum Microcanonical Postulate|
|Citation:||Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 2007, 67 (1)|
|Abstract:||A quantum microcanonical postulate is proposed as a basis for the equilibrium properties of small quantum systems. Expressions for the corresponding density of states are derived, and are used to establish the existence of phase transitions for finite quantum systems. A grand microcanonical ensemble is introduced, which can be used to obtain new rigorous results in quantum statistical mechanics.|
