Classical Ideal Gas 3. Swendsen Abstract This book is an introduction to statistical mechanics and thermodynamics.
Classical, Early, and Medieval Plays and Playwrights: Refresh and try again. It explains concepts from a ground-up approach, starting with probability theory and Boltzmann’s original definition of the entropy, and doesn’t skimp on either clarity thermodynaimcs explanation or depth. It is also suitable for graduate study.
Yameen marked it as to-read Sep 29, Ryan marked it as to-read Sep 09, The book is currently used in Carnegie Mellon Thermodynaimcs undergraduate and graduate classes, and is a first-rate introduction to advanced graduate works like Kardar or Landau. This text presents the two complementary aspects of thermal physics as an integrated theory of the properties of matter. The text is designed for a two-semester undergraduate course but can be adapted for one-semester courses emphasizing either aspect of thermal physics.

Print Save Cite Email Share. A unique feature of the book is the development of entropy based on Boltzmann’s definition; this avoids contradictions or ad hoc corrections found in other texts. Trivia About An Introduction t Detailed fundamentals provide a natural grounding for advanced topics, such as black-body radiation and quantum gases. It explains concepts from a ground-up approach, starting with probability theory and Boltzmann’s original definition of entropy, through to the statistical mechanics foundations of thermodynamics, and then to actual calculations in classical and quantum statistical mechanics.
