An Introduction to Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics
This text presents the two complementary aspects of thermal physics as an integrated theory of the properties of matter...Foundations of statistical mechanics
Starting with primary physical assumptions and their idealization in the form of postulates, this text examines the consequences of these postulates, culminating in the derivation of the fundamental formulas for calculating probabilities in terms of dynamical quantities and concluding with an analysis of the notion of entropy...Principles of Physics: From Quantum Field Theory to Classical Mechanics
This book starts from a set of common basic principles to establish the formalisms in all areas of fundamental physics, including quantum field theory, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, general relativity, electromagnetic field, and classical mechanics...Statistical and Thermal Physics: With Computer Applications
This textbook carefully develops the main ideas and techniques of statistical and thermal physics and is intended for upper-level undergraduate courses...Statistical Mechanics Made Easy: A Guide for Students and Researchers
This graduate textbook develops the rudiments of thermodynamics and statistical physics, then describes the quantum statistics of bosons and fermions, the kinetic theory of dilute gases, the transfer matrix applied to the two-dimensional Ising model, and a quantum field theory approach to diffusion-limited chemical reactions...
