Abstract : These notes are an expanded and revised version of the lectures given by the second and fourth autor in the summer school -Open Quantum System- held in Grenoble, June 16-July 4, 2003. They provide an introduction to recent developments in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics of open quantum systems, including a completely worked out simple example. We discuss non-equilibrium steady states NESS and their structural properties, entropy production, linear response theory and weak coupling limit. The emphasis is on Ruelle-s scattering approach to the construction of NESS.

Keywords : linear response theory free Fermi gas nonequilibrium statistical mechanics NESS steady-state entropy production Kubo formula Onsager reciprocity relations
