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. exist many very good textbooks on statistical physics and the purpose of this script is soley to document my personal choice of the relevant material. Several guiding principles determined the design of this course. First I completely agree with Josef Honerkamp who . 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. Topics covered includes: Fundamentals of Statistical Physics, Statistical Mechanics of Non-Interacting Particles, Interacting Gases and the Liquid-Gas Phase Transition, Dynamics of Liquids and Gases, Lattices and Spins, Microscopic Models for Interacting Gases, Landau Field Theory. Author(s): Scott Pratt.
A list of notable textbooks in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, arranged by category and date. 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 . Mar 02, · 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 . Chapter 0 Preface This is a book about statistical mechanics at the advanced undergraduate level. It assumes a background in classical mechanics through the concept of phase space, in quantum mechanics through the Pauli exclusion.
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). Jan 01, · Statistical Physics book. Read 2 reviews from the world. The laws of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics form one of the most fascinating branches of physics. This new edition discards the historical approach of treating thermodynamics and statistical mechanics as separate disciplines in favor of an integrated approach/5. 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 Brand: Dover Publications. ( views) Statistical Physics by Yuri Galperin, Jens Feder - University of Oslo, Statistical physics is a highly active part of physics. Many types of nonlinear systems are beyond our present understanding and theoretical tools. The purpose of this course is to acquaint you with the central issues of statistical mechanics.
