Statistical Physics: Second Revised and Enlarged Edition


File Size: 2.29 Mb

Description
This third edition of Statistical Physics follows the organization and purpose of the second edition, with comparatively minor updating and changes to the text. I hope it continues to provide an accessible introduction to the subject, particularly suitable for physics undergraduates. Chapter summaries have been added to the first nine (basic) chapters, in order to encourage students to revise the important ideas of each chapter – essential background for an informed understanding of later chapters.
