This is the second part of a two-volume textbook on the modern statistical theory of nonequilibrium processes. The general method of nonequilibrium statistical ensembles developed in the first volume is applied to various problems in linear response theory, relaxation phenomena, hydrodynamics, and the dynamical theory of fluctuations. Some active areas of research are considered, including relaxation processes in highly nonequilibrium systems, kinetic processes in lasers, nonequilibrium many-particle correlations in the Green’s function formalism, superfluid statistical hydrodynamics, large-scale fluctuations in nonequilibrium systems, and statistical mechanics of turbulence. Exercises and problems for readers are also included. The book is self-contained and accessible to students having heard the standard course in statistical physics. It is also of interest for specialists working in solid state physics, chemical physics, and physics of plasma and fluids.
