Download e-book for iPad: An Introduction to Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics by Robert H. Swendsen

By Robert H. Swendsen

this article offers the 2 complementary facets of thermal physics as an built-in conception of the homes of topic. Conceptual knowing is promoted through thorough improvement of uncomplicated techniques. unlike many texts, statistical mechanics, together with dialogue of the necessary chance conception, is gifted first. this offers a statistical starting place for the idea that of entropy, that is valuable to thermal physics. a distinct function of the booklet is the
development of entropy in keeping with Boltzmann's 1877 definition; this avoids contradictions or advert hoc corrections present in different texts. distinctive basics offer a traditional grounding for complicated subject matters, resembling black-body radiation and quantum gases. an intensive set of difficulties (solutions are
available for academics during the OUP website), many together with particular computations, develop the middle content material by way of probing crucial recommendations. The textual content is designed for a two-semester undergraduate direction yet might be tailored for one-semester classes emphasizing both element of thermal physics. it's also compatible for graduate study.
