Nonextensive statistical mechanics is now a rapidly growing field anda new stream in the research of the foundations of statisticalmechanics. This generalization of the wellknown Boltzmann — Gibbstheory enables the study of systems with longrange interactions,longterm memories or multifractal structures. This book consists ofa set of selfcontained lectures and includes additionalcontributions where some of the latest developments — ranging fromastro  to biophysics — are covered. Addressing primarily graduatestudents and lecturers, this book will also be a useful reference forall researchers working in the field.
