What is Maxwell Distribution, Thermal Equilibrium, Fluctuation and Wein's law?

  • #1
I was reading a book, 'Introducing Quantum Theory' by J.P.McEvoy, and I find it difficult to understand in details of Maxwell Distribution, Thermal Equilibrium, Fluctuation, Wein's law and Planck's quantum theory, so I am finding it difficult to follow Einstein's explanation of photoelectric effect. Can someone explain the following things I listed above, from scratch to top, including the explanation of graphs?

OK My question was too vague. I will ask much more specific question.
