Hi, I am trying to fully understand the meaning and usage of phase space in the various contexts it's used. For example particle physics, classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, relativity. Also, there is configuration space, parameter space, and state space. How are all of these things formally defined in all of the contexts they are used? How can I find some reliable, complete and detailed information about these topics? Which and how much maths and physics do I need to study to fully understand these topics, and be capable of performing meaningful data analysis on simulation data (particle physics, plasma physics, etc)?
