Nonequilibrium Statistical Physics Noelle Pottier. Simple Models of Magnetism Ralph Skomski. Conceptual understanding is promoted by thorough development of basic concepts.
This, conversely, is written quite pedagogically a big plus for meby someone with a deep and tremendously insightful understanding of statistical mechanics. Tom rated it really liked it Nov 14, Nikhil Hatwar is currently reading it Feb 11, To request a copy of the Solutions Manual, visit: The author’s subject organization and conceptual viewpoint address some of the shortcomings of conventional developments of thermal physics and will be helpful to students and researchers seeking a deep appreciation of statistical physics.
Despite the contents structure is in principle consistent in teaching the issue, unfortunately the reader bumps into formulas working out that shows up many mistakes.

The book is currently used in Carnegie Mellon University’s undergraduate and graduate classes, and is a first-rate introduction to advanced graduate works like Kardar or Landau.
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 of explanation or depth. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
The text presents many problems that support conceptual development, with a strong emphasis on computational methods. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Authors Affiliations are at time of print publication. Publications Pages Publications Pages.
In contrast to many texts, statistical mechanics, including discussion of the required probability theory, is presented first. It’s a first-rate introduction to the subject and to graduate texts such as Kardar. This provides a statistical foundation for the concept of entropy, which is central to thermal physics.
