Besides the Poisson-Boltzmann equation, I would like to know what are the modern developments/applications of classical statistical mechanics.

In summary, the conversation touches on various applications and developments of statistical mechanics, including the use of Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein statistics in condensed matter and neutron stars, the Planck blackbody function, and the behavior of polymers. Classical statistical mechanics is also mentioned as being central to understanding these phenomena.

The opening chapter(s) of de Gennes's book on polymer physics has a beautiful discussion of the role entropy plays in polymer conformations.
