The book by Callen also draws heavily on the work by Edwin Jaynes on the relation-ship between statistical physics and information theory as pioneered by Claude Shan-non.

Although somehow debated, this link shows once again that statistical physics is more than statistical mechanics. Information theory provides very helpful insight into.

Translated by J. Kestin () New York:Academic Press. Mandl, Franz (). 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 explores the physical properties of matter based on the dynamic behavior of its microscopic constituents.

After a historical introduction, this book presents chapters about thermodynamics, ensemble theory, simple gases theory, Ideal Bose and Fermi systems, statistical mechanics of interacting systems, phase transitions, and computer simulations/5(24). 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.

The Poincaré theorem expresses the reversibility of the mechanical equations of motion. For a proof see for instance Chapter 1 of Lectures in Statistical Mechanics by G. Uhlenbeck and G. Ford, published by the American Mathematical Society, Providence, Rhode Island ().

There one finds also a detailed discussion of this basic dilemma, which I have called the problem of by: 5. This book is written by Giovanni Gallavotti and a clear book presents a critical and modern analysis of the conceptual foundations of statistical mechanics as laid down in Boltzmann's works.

The author emphasises the relation between microscopic reversibility and macroscopic irreversibility, explaining fundamental concepts in detail.Nijenrode Castle in Breukelen, the Netherlands, situated between Utrecht and Amsterdam, was home for seventeen days during August of last year to more than sixty physicists, chemists, and advanced students from sixteen countries.

These people gathered to attend an intensive course on Fundamental Problems in Statistical Mechanics, held under the auspices of NUFFIC (the Netherlands Universities Author: Gordon Baym.State University. Although they are more terse than a typical text book, they do cover all the material used in PHY The notes presume a familiarity with basic undergraduate concepts in statistical mechanics, and with some basic concepts from first-year graduate quantum, such as harmonic oscillators and raising and lowering Size: KB.
