Statistical Physics ETH Zur¨ ich – Herbstsemester Manfred Sigrist, HIT K • Statistical Mechanics, R.P. Feynman, Advanced Book Classics, Perseus Books (). • Statistische Mechanik, R. Hentschke, Wiley-VCH (). 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. Boltzmann of Austria, are generally credited with having developed the fundamental principles of the field with their work .

This course offers an introduction to probability, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics. Numerous examples are used to illustrate a wide variety of physical phenomena such as magnetism, polyatomic gases, thermal radiation, electrons in solids, and noise in electronic course is an elective subject in MIT’s undergraduate Energy Studies Minor.

R. /5. we can forget that the results are statistical at all, and treat them as exact laws of physics. For instance, the familiar equation of state of an ideal gas, PV=νRT(see Section ), is actually a statistical result. In other words, it relates the average pressure, and the average volume, to the average temperature.

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:Cited by: 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. 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.

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, 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.

Statistical Physics, Second Edition features:Reviews: 1. The text explains very clearly the fundamental concepts of statistical physics in a self contained manner.

This textbook is useful to the understanding of other texts of the course of theoretical physics by Landau and Lifshitz. I strongly believe this book is an essential reading to both theoretical and experimental physicists.

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 Reviews: 1.
