Computer Exercises and Course Materials

James P. Sethna

for "Statistical Mechanics: Entropy, Order Parameters, and Complexity"

This site includes materials useful in some of the interactive exercises, and also hints for the computer exercises (available both for Mathematica and Python). For python, we recommend the Anaconda distribution. Make sure to get the acadamic version. We recommend using the Accelerate package (conda update conda; conda install accelerate).
