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. Statistical Mechanics 3rd Edition by R K Pathria, Paul D. Beale; One may also get interest into the book - 6. Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics 1st Edition by David Chandler. The approach of this book to the subject is very different than the above mentioned books. 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.

34 rows Lecture Note 15 (PDF) The Cluster Expansion. Lecture Note 16 (PDF) The Second . A list of notable textbooks in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, arranged by category and date. Front cover of the second edition of Herbert Callen's text. Sommerfeld, Arnold; ed: F. Bopp, J. Meixner (). Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Translated by J. Kestin () New York:Academic Press. Mandl, Franz (). This series of lectures by Y. Velenik provides a mathematically rigorous introduction to the statistical mechanics of lattice systems. It is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Introduction to Statistical Mechanics by John Dirk Walecka. The science of statistical mechanics is concerned with defining the thermodynamic properties of a macroscopic sample in terms of the properties of the microscopic systems of which it is composed. The aim of this book is to provide a clear, logical, and self-contained treatment of.
I'm planing on learning Statistical Mechanics by myself. I would like to hear recomendations on what you think are the best Statistical Mechanics books. My interest right now would be books that are on a undergraduate level, with detailed explanation, examples and problems, but you could also recomend higher level books for future references. In a comprehensive treatment of Statistical Mechanics from thermodynamics through the renormalization group, this book serves as the core text for a full-year graduate course in statistical mechanics at either the Masters or Ph.D. level. The book first covers the classical ensembles of statistical mechanics and stochastic processes, including Brownian motion, probability theory, and the Fokker–Planck and Langevin equations. To illustrate the use of statistical methods beyond the theory of matter, the author discusses entropy in information theory, Brownian motion in the stock. Statistical Mechanics presents an introduction to statistical mechanics of systems in thermodynamic equilibrium as well as continuum mechanics, quantum mechanics, and molecular dynamics. Each part of the book concludes with exercise sets that allow readers to test their understanding of the presented material.
