Lecture Notes on Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics. This note describes the following topics: Basic Statistical Notions, Time-evolving ensembles, Equilibrium Ensembles, The Ideal Quantum Gas, The Laws of Thermodynamics, Dynamical Systems and Approach to Equilibrium. Problems on Statistical Mechanics provides over problems with model solutions, illustrating both basic principles and applications that range from solid-state physics to cosmology. An introductory chapter provides a summary of the basic concepts and results that are needed to tackle the problems, and also serves to establish the notation.

This book should be on the bookshelf of any serious student, researcher and teacher of mathematical statistical mechanics. Ofer Zeitouni, Weizmann Institute, Israel. Sacha Friedli and Yvan Velenik have succeeded in writing a unique, modern treatise on equilibrium statistical mechanics. Statistical mechanics This classic text, first published in , is designed for graduate physics courses in statistical mechanics. The second edition, published in , incorporated three comprehensive chapters on phase transitions and critical phenomena.4/5(1).

Book Description. This classic graduate lecture note volume on statistical mechanics focuses on Physics, rather than mathematics. It provides a concise introduction to basic concepts and a clear presentation of difficult topics, while challenging the student to reflect upon as yet unanswered questions. A really good first textbook for statistical mechanics is David Chandler's Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics. It's written by a physical chemist for senior undergraduates and does an excellent job distilling down the very fundamental material into a one-semester course at Berkeley.

Statistical mechanics is one of the pillars of modern is necessary for the fundamental study of any physical system that has many degrees of approach is based on statistical methods, probability theory and the microscopic physical laws. It can be used to explain the thermodynamic behaviour of large systems.

This is a well-written and well-balanced textbook, accessible to anybody with knowledge of analysis, probability theory and quantum mechanics.5/5(1).

Equilibrium and Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics. World Scientific Publishing Company. ISBN Peliti, Luca (). Statistical Mechanics in a Nutshell. 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). That said. 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. Statistical physics is a branch of physics that uses methods of probability theory and statistics, and particularly the mathematical tools for dealing with large populations and approximations, in solving physical problems.

Maren, Ph.D. Yes, of course I’m writing a book. (We teach best what we most need to learn, according to Richard Bach.)But before I get the book written, or articles published, there are all kinds of crucial elements that I’m publishing as very fast turn-around, right here in my blogs.

I consider myself a physics self-studier (although I've taken the introductory physics series and more in college), and I'm looking for an introduction to statistical mechanics. My thermal physics class used Schroeder's "Thermal Physics" text, which touches slightly on stat-mech at the end of the book, but I'm looking for further education on.

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.
