Describes the theory of how processes on the unobservable molecular scale give rise to observable effects, such as diffusion and electrical noise on the macroscopic or laboratory scale. This title puts the modern theory into historical context, and features various applications, statistical mechanics derivations, and the mathematical background.

Brownian motion - the incessant motion of small particles suspended in a fluid - is an important topic in statistical physics and physical chemistry. This book studies its origin in molecular scale fluctuations, its description in terms of random process theory and also in terms of statistical mechanics. A number of new applications of these descriptions to physical and chemical processes, as well as statistical mechanical derivations and the mathematical background are discussed in detail. Graduate students, lecturers, and researchers in statistical physics and physical chemistry will find this an interesting and useful reference work.
