Unformatted text preview: E denotes the energy of one oscillator (which is a member of an ensemble of oscillators). 2. Problem 2.5, Phase space for N oscillators. In this problem, E denotes the total energy of N oscillators. Do not pay attention to the discussion of how specic heat changes with temperature. We have not introduced these concepts yet. Just calculate the volume of the phase space. 3. Problem 2.6, Spin chain with energy S 2 j . 4. Problem 2.7, Lattice gas. February 18, 2008...
