Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics.
A companion volume, Statistical Physics of Fields, discusses non-mean field aspects of scaling and critical phenomena, through the perspective of renormalization group. People who bought this also bought. It’s well written and the problems at the end of the chapters make you think and sometimes google how to solve them. Long rated it liked it Mar 21, I think it’s one of the clearest exposition on statistical mechanics.
A complete set of solutions is available to lecturers on a password protected website at www.

Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Hardcoverpages. Students will appreciate the precision and clarity in which difficult concepts are presented in generality and by example. Based on lectures for a course in statistical mechanics taught by Professor Kardar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, this textbook introduces the central concepts and tools of statistical physics. Nooshin rated it really liked it Jun 09, Refresh and try again. The meat of the textbook is less than pages and includes all of the basic results of thermodynamics, a section on probability, an introduction to kinetic theory, and the bulk of classical and quantum statistical mechanics; brevity is the soul of wit, as they say.
Statistical Physics of Particles
But dollars is a rip off to be honest. Page 5 – SW depends only on the initial and final states and not on the path followed between the two states.
One person found this helpful. The text itself however was mediocre at best.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Trivia About Statistical Physi A few areas could have used a lardar more elaboration the derivation of the Boltzmann equation seemed to skip a few important steps in implementing the streaming collision terms, and a better explanation for the basics of diagrammatical techniques would have been nicebut none of the other books I have looked at even broached these topics in any depth.
I really like this.
