This book conveys to the reader that statistical mechanics is a growing and lively subject. It deals with many modern topics from a physics standpoint in a very physical way.

Particular emphasis is given to the fundamental assumption of statistical mechanics S=1n and /5(4). 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.

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 present book is a teaching text designed to introduce the fundamentals of the subject of statistical mechanics at a level suitable for students who meet the subject for the first time.

The treatment given is designed to give the student a feeling for the topic of statistical mechanics without being held back by the need to understand complex mathematics. In this part, the best treatment for the ideal Bose gas is given by `Statistical mechanics' by T.D. Lee (in Chinese), and for the ideal Fermi gas given by S.K.

For these parts, I should give 3 stars. However, the strong parts of Huang's book is the chapters on the advanced topics. The writting is compact and by: Statistical Mechanics is the extended version of McQuarrie's earlier text - Statistical Thermodynamics (USB ).

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 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. 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, and computer simulations.

Physics, rather than mathematics, is the focus in this classic graduate lecture note volume on statistical mechanics and the physics of condensed matter.

This book 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/5.

In a comprehensive treatment of Statistical Mechanics from thermodynamics through the renormalization group, this book serves as the core text for a full-year graduate course in statistical mechanics at either the Masters or Ph.D. level. This book examines the latest developments in statistical mechanics in the context of physical chemistry.

Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics (Classical Theoretical Physics) by Walter Greiner - lots of worked examples and explanations - probably the most "friendly" of the grad-level books.

Statistical Mechanics (Huang) - another standard stat mech grad textbook. Seems to explain some things in more detail than Kardar, but fewer problems. '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).

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.

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, Continuous Phase Transitions and Transport.

Shortly before his death, Gibbs published in Elementary Principles in Statistical Mechanics, a book which formalized statistical mechanics as a fully general approach to address all mechanical systems—macroscopic or microscopic, gaseous or non-gaseous.

\Ludwig Boltzmann, who spent much of his life studying statistical mechan-ics, died in by his own hand.

This book is the result of the experience of the writer in teaching the subject of Applied Mechanics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is primarily a text-book ; and hence the writer has endeavored to present the different subjects in such a way as seemed to him best for the progress of the class, even though it be at some.

Statistical Mechanics is a probabilistic approach to equilibrium properties of large numbers of degrees of freedom. In this two-semester course, basic principles are examined. Topics include: Thermodynamics, probability theory, kinetic theory, classical statistical mechanics, interacting systems, quantum statistical mechanics, and identical particles.

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.

Huang's Statistical Mechanics (supplementary). This is a great book. the statisticalproperties of the atomic or molecular motion. The method adopted in thermodynamics is essentially dictated by the enormous complexity of thermodynamic systems. We generally start offwith some statistical information about the motions of the constituent atoms or molecules, such as their average kinetic energy, but possess.

Statistical mechanics is a branch of physics that applies probability theory to the study of the thermodynamic behavior of systems composed of a large number of particles.
