    Rigorous Statistical Mechanics has a long tradition, starting in the s with Dobrushin, Lanford, Ruelle, Sinai and many other mathematical physicists. Yet, surprisingly, there has not been an up-to-date textbook on an introductory level. This gap is bridged masterly by the present book.   If you know basic Calculus, and have done some high school physics but you are not quite ready to do anything "intermediate" then this one right here: Young and Freedman. Read it, solve the problems, and then you can go on to some more interesti.

    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. introductory statistical mechanics Download introductory statistical mechanics or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.

This book is truly intended as a first book on statistical mechanics for physics students, and kicks off in that direction very well. The first chapter on basic principles takes a Boltzmann style approach to the subject, and clearly demonstrates with a couple of excellent examples the harmlessness of replacing the total number of states with just the number of states in the most likely by: 9.

This book explains the ideas and techniques of statistical mechanics--the theory of condensed matter--in a simple and progressive way. The text begins with the laws of thermodynamics and the basic ideas of quantum by: D K C MacDonald Offers a clear and simple presentation of the principals of statistical mechanics.

(David Keith Chalmers), Publication date Pages: Additional Physical Format: Online version: MacDonald, D.K.C. (David Keith Chalmers), Introductory statistical mechanics for physicists. New York, Wiley []. This is a cut up version of Huang's Statistical Mechanics book intended for an undergraduate audience.

The book is filled with mathmatical errors (or a lot of misprints) and grammatical errors. The chapters are only pages on average with absolutely no insight or by: Another profound textbook on statistical mechanics, although much more advanced in scope and style, is the treatise by Gallavotti.

In my opinion the book lacks one star to be perfect because the often profound explanations it contains are sometimes expounded in an intricate way, not so clear to catch, and this requires extra effort by the reader/5(8). Buy Introductory Statistical Mechanics for Physicists (Dover Books on Physics) by MacDonald, D K C (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders.5/5(1). It may sound old but 0."An introduction to statistical physics- by A.J. Pointon" is a very handy book to absorb the concept of calculation over phase space from the very beginning.

The book is suitable for a one semester course, designed for last year undergraduate and beginning graduate students. Introductory Statistical Mechanics by Bowley and Sanchez (essential). This is a really amazing, concise, and clear introduction to thermodynamics and statistical mechanics - the best I've found so far.

Advanced Electives in Physics. BSc Sem V & VI Recommended Text-Books. Quantum Mechanics, Special Theory of Relativity & Electromagnetic waves comes under the first book. On the other hand, Atomic/Molecular Physics & Subatomic Physics covers the second book of BSc 3rd year.

Last but not least the third book covers Basic Electronic & Analog/Digital of the best books for each of the three. Statistical physics is a core component of most undergraduate (and some post-graduate) physics degree courses.

It is primarily concerned with the behavior of matter in bulk-from boiling water to the superconductivity of metals. Ultimately, it seeks to uncover the laws governing random processes, such as the snow on your TV screen.

This essential new textbook guides the Reviews: 1. Introductory Statistical Mechanics. This book explains the ideas and techniques of statistical mechanics-the theory of condensed matter-in a simple and progressive way.

The text starts with the. Introductory Statistical Mechanics. In these respects the present book is very different - the authors, Roger Bowley and Mariana Sanchez, make a real effort to introduce the subject in a step. 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 book is truly intended as a first book on statistical mechanics for physics students, and kicks off in that direction very well.

The first chapter on basic principles takes a Boltzmann style approach to the subject, and clearly demonstrates with a couple of excellent examples the harmlessness of replacing the total number of states with just the number of states in the most likely configuration.3/5(1).

An introductory textbook using the statistical approach for covering classical and quantum statistics and classical thermodynamics, geared for undergraduates majoring in physics. Develops fundamental concepts carefully and deliberately. I found that the following reference is a good book to start with for statistical mechanics.

Statistical Physics (Manchester Physics Series) by F. Mandl, John Wiley and Sons Ltd. it has quite many clear examples and it carries you through the different physical concepts step by step.

The standard undergraduate syllabus in Physics includes in introductory course in Statistical Mechanics, while the postgraduate course in Statistical Mechanics is much more extensive in scope and this book is intended for both categories of students.

Students often take difficulty in. Statistical Mechanifesto. This book covers the following topics: The Fundamental Postulate of Statistical Mechanics, The Four Concepts of Statistical Mechanics, Classical Statistical Mechanics, Helmholtz Free Energy, The Ensembles, Microscopic Distributions and Quantum Statistics, Thermodynamics, Etcetera.

This book explains the ideas and techniques of statistical mechanics--the theory of condensed matter--in a simple and progressive way. The text begins with the laws of thermodynamics and the basic ideas of quantum mechanics. The conceptual ideas are then developed carefully, and the mathematical techniques are developed in parallel to give a coherent overall view.An appendix provides an introduction to non-equilibrium statistical mechanics through the Boltzmann equation and its extensions.

The book assumes introductory courses in classical and quantum mechanics, as well as familiarity with multi-variable calculus and the essentials of complex analysis.Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics.
