Unparalled in its ponderousness, the derivations are beautiful, and the physical motivation for each one is always laid out in detail. This covers quantum as well as classical statistical mechanics/5(23).

In this lecture note, basic principles of Statistical Mechanics are examined. Topics covered includes: Thermodynamics, probability theory, kinetic theory, classical statistical mechanics, interacting systems, quantum statistical mechanics, and identical particles. Author(s): Prof. Mehran Kardar. The book opens with concise, unusually clear introductory chapters on classical statistical mechanics, quantum statistical mechanics and the relation of statistical mechanics to thermodynamics. Then follows a wide-ranging, detailed examination of various applications. Chapter 4 deals with : Terrell L Hill.

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. - Buy Principles of Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics (Wiley-Vch) book online at best prices in India on Read Principles of Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics (Wiley-Vch) book reviews & author details and more at Free delivery on qualified : Debashish Chowdhury, Dietrich Stauffer.
