is. 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 of Particles 1st Edition by Mehran Kardar ; 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. Until recently, the field of statistical physics was traditionally taught as three separate subjects: thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and kinetic theory. This text, a forerunner in its field and now a classic, was the first to recognize the outdated reasons for their separation and to combine the essentials of the three subjects into one /5(8). Statistical Physics Lecture Notes. This book covers the following topics: Statistical physics is an unfinished and highly active part of ples of statistical mechanics, Thermodynamic quantities, The Gibbs Distribution, Ideal gas, Statistical ensembles, Fluctuations, Stochastic Processes, Non-Ideal Gases, Phase Equilibrium.
Landau and Lifshitz, Statistical Physics Russian style: terse, encyclopedic, magni cent. Much of this book comes across as remarkably modern given that it was rst published in Mandl, Statistical Physics This is an easy going book with very clear explanations but doesn’t go into as much detail as we will need for this Size: 1MB. example. Moreover, statistical physics in its modern form has given us a complete understand-ing of second-order phase transitions, and with Wilson’sRenormalization Group theory we may calculate the scaling exponents observed in experiments on phase transitions. However, the ﬁeld of statistical physics is in a phase of rapid Size: 1MB. Undergraduate students of physics and related sciences will find this a stimulating account of the basic physics and its applications. Only an elementary knowledge of kinetic theory and atomic physics, as well as the rudiments of quantum theory, are presupposed for an understanding of this book. Statistical Physics, Second Edition features:Author: Franz Mandl. This is an academic textbook for a one-semester course in statistical physics at honours BSc level. It is in three parts and begins with a unified treatment of equilibrium systems, based on the concept of the statistical ensemble, in which the usual combinatorial calculation only has to be worked out once/5(13).
About this book This undergraduate textbook provides a statistical mechanical foundation to the classical laws of thermodynamics via a comprehensive treatment of the basics of classical thermodynamics, equilibrium statistical mechanics, irreversible thermodynamics, and the statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium phenomena. Get this from a library! Statistical physics. [Gregory H Wannier] -- This classic text combines thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and kinetic theory in a single unified presentation of thermal physics. The three-part treatment covers the principles of statistical. A Modern Course in Statistical Physics is a textbook that illustrates the foundations of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics, and the universal nature of thermodynamic processes, from the point of view of contemporary research problems.. The book treats such diverse topics as the microscopic theory of critical phenomena, superfluid dynamics, quantum . For a good self study guide, I would suggest Blundell and Blundell's "Concepts in Thermal Physics" it builds up the thermodynamics part for a good 1/3 of the book but then the rest is statistical mech, has several applications of both, many practical and it includes several discussions in advanced topics, my favorite was the derivation of.
