Essential Advanced Physics is a series comprising four parts: Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics, Quantum Mechanics and Statistical part consists of two volumes, Lecture Notes and Problems with Solutions, further supplemented by an additional collection of test problems and solutions available to qualifying university instructors. The contribution to this subject made over the last decade by researchers applying the techniques of statistical mechanics is the subject of this book. The authors provide a coherent account of various important concepts and techniques that are currently only found scattered in papers, supplement this with background material in mathematics and.

The translation of this important book brings to the English-speaking mathematician and mathematical physicist a thoroughly up-to-date introduction to statistical mechanics. It offers a precise and mathematically rigorous formulation of the problems of statistical mechanics, as opposed to the non-rigorous discussion presented in most other works. Thermodynamics and statistical thermodynamics In this course, we are going to develop some machinery for interrelating the sta-tistical properties of a system containing a very large number of particles, via a statistical treatment of the laws of atomic or molecular motion.

"This wonderful book excels not only in the topics covered but also in the author's unique approach to these topics." -- Journal of Statistical Physics, Dec An elegant and rather personal account of statistical mechanics that stands out from the pack for many reasons.

-- Nigel Goldenfeld, University of Illinois, Urbana-ChampaignCited by: So far (I'm at about Ch 3) it seems to be a good choice. I have a background in physics and math, but developed a dislike for thermodynamics as an undergrad.

This book presents the big picture issues regarding statistical mechanics and does a good job tying together quantum mechanics and thermodynamics.4/4(28). A list of notable textbooks in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, arranged by category and date.

Translated by J. Kestin () New York:Academic Press. Mandl, Franz (). Undergrad Level: An Introduction to Thermal Physics (Schroeder) is the one that seems to be recommended more than any other book. It's very user-friendly and informal (probably the most user-friendly stat mech textbook on the market).

After a historical introduction, this book presents chapters about thermodynamics, ensemble theory, simple gases theory, Ideal Bose and Fermi systems, statistical mechanics of interacting systems, phase transitions, and computer simulations.

Statistical Mechanics 3rd Edition by R K Pathria, Paul D. Beale; One may also get interest into the book - 6. Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics 1st Edition by David Chandler.

The approach of this book to the subject is very different than the above mentioned books. Pathria is also the author of a well-known graduate text book on Statistical Mechanics, which has recently appeared in its Pathria is known for his work on Superfluidity in liquid helium, Lorentz transformation of thermodynamic quantities, a rigorous evaluation of lattice sums and finite-size effects in phase transitions/5.

The book by Callen also draws heavily on the work by Edwin Jaynes on the relation-ship between statistical physics and information theory as pioneered by Claude Shan-non. Although somehow debated, this link shows once again that statistical physics is more than statistical mechanics.

Information theory provides very helpful insight into. The book contains a detailed review of classical and quantum mechanics, in-depth discussions of the most commonly used ensembles simultaneously with modern computational techniques such as molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo, and important topics including free-energy calculations, linear-response theory, harmonic baths and the generalized.

I'm planing on learning Statistical Mechanics by myself. I would like to hear recomendations on what you think are the best Statistical Mechanics books. My interest right now would be books that are on a undergraduate level, with detailed explanation, examples and problems, but you could also recomend higher level books for future references.

Statistical Mechanics by Dr Alfred Huan. This note explains the following topics: Distribution Law, Indistinguishable Particles, Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamic Laws, Applications of Maxwell-Boltzmann Statistics, Paramagnetic Systems, Applications of Fermi-Dirac Statistics, Applications of Bose-Einstein Statistics, The Classical Limit, Kinetic Theory of Gases.

Statistical Mechanics explores the physical properties of matter based on the dynamic behavior of its microscopic constituents. After a historical introduction, this book presents chapters about thermodynamics, ensemble theory, simple gases theory, Ideal Bose and Fermi systems, statistical mechanics of interacting systems, phase transitions.

The mathematical structure of statistical mechanics was established by the American physicist Josiah Willard Gibbs in his book Elementary Principles in Statistical Mechanics (), but two earlier physicists, James Clerk Maxwell of Great Britain and Ludwig E.

Boltzmann of Austria, are generally credited with having developed the fundamental principles of the field with their work. This book is written by Giovanni Gallavotti and a clear book presents a critical and modern analysis of the conceptual foundations of statistical mechanics as laid down in Boltzmann's works.

The author emphasises the relation between microscopic reversibility and macroscopic irreversibility, explaining fundamental concepts in detail.

"The book under review is an English translation of the second edition of the popular textbook on equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. This is a well-written and well-balanced textbook, accessible to anybody with knowledge of analysis, probability theory Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

The book opens with concise, unusually clear introductory chapters on classical statistical mechanics, quantum statistical mechanics and the relation of statistical mechanics to thermodynamics.

Then follows a wide-ranging, detailed examination of various applications. Chapter 4 deals with fluctuations.'This is an excellent book from which to learn the methods and results of statistical mechanics.' Nature 'A well written graduate-level text for scientists and engineers Highly recommended for graduate-level libraries.' Choice This highly successful text, which first appeared in the year and has continued to be popular ever since, has now been brought up-to-date by incorporating /5(2).

“This long-awaited book is an elegant and rather personal account of statistical mechanics that stands out from the pack for many reasons. Not only does it conspicuously emphasize the different treatments afforded to different levels of description, but it also discusses the connection between dynamical systems theory and the foundations of statistical mechanics.
