About this book

​From the reviews:

"The second volume covers statistical mechanics and related topics. It contains 22 papers divided into four groups: Part I: Probability Theory; Part II: Statistical Mechanics; Part III: Mathematical Physics; Part IV: Mathematical Fluid Dynamics. The volume represents Sinai’s work on the above topics spanning almost 40 years: the earliest paper is dated 1972, and the latest 2008. The choice of papers was made by Sinai himself, and he provides commentary for each one. The reader will find a wealth of information and ideas that can still ignite inspiration and motivate students as well as senior researchers. The reader will also have a touch of Sinai’s personality, his taste, enthusiasm, and optimism, which are just as invaluable as his mathematical results." (Nikolai Chernov, Mathematical Reviews 2012e)
