Introduction 1 The overall object of thermal and statistical physics is to understand the behavior of macroscopic systems from the microscopic interactions between the particles making up the systems. Is this possible? In gen- eral? Yes. We know of many examples where the collective properties of macroscopic objects do not depend on the microscopic details. For example, a liquid will behave as a liquid if it is made from metal, glass, water, polymers (macromolecules) or liquid hydrogen! Macroscopic materials have common properties that do not depend on the details of the interactions in the materials. The details of the interactions in metals and in polymers are very different, but the behavior of liquids such as fluid dynamics and phase transitions are similar – they are common for all liquids – independent of the details. Macroscopic objects have their own laws and behaviors which we must understand, learn, and preferrably develop a theoretical foundation for based on microscopic interactions – this is how we will claim that we have understood the behavior of a system. What kinds of questions will we be ab
