Physics, rather than mathematics, is the focus in this classic graduate lecture note volume on statistical mechanics and the physics of condensed matter. This book provides a concise introduction to basic concepts and a clear presentation of difficult topics, while challenging the student to reflect upon as yet unanswered questions/5. The fundamental methodology of statistical mechanics involves applying probabilistic arguments about microstates, regarding macrostates as statisti-cal averages. It is because of the very large number of particles involved that the mean behaviour corresponds so well to the observed behaviour – that fluctuations are Size: KB. statistical mechanics, quantitative study of systems consisting of a large number of interacting elements, such as the atoms or molecules of a solid, liquid, or gas, or the individual quanta of light (see photon photon, the particle composing light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation, sometimes called light .   (April 1, ) Leonard Susskind introduces statistical mechanics as one of the most universal disciplines in modern physics.

Problems on Statistical Mechanics provides over problems with model solutions, illustrating both basic principles and applications that range from solid-state physics to cosmology. An introductory chapter provides a summary of the basic concepts and results that are needed to tackle the problems, and also serves to establish the notation.

Statistical mechanics is one of the pillars of modern is necessary for the fundamental study of any physical system that has many degrees of approach is based on statistical methods, probability theory and the microscopic physical laws.

It can be used to explain the thermodynamic behaviour of large systems. This branch of statistical mechanics, which treats and extends.

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.

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.

This book provides a series of concise lectures on the fundamental theories of statistical mechanics, carefully chosen examples and a number of problems with complete solutions. Modern physics has opened the way for a thorough examination of infra-structure of nature and understanding of the properties of matter from an atomistic point of Edition: 1.

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.

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).

Pathria is also the author of a well-known graduate text book on Statistical Mechanics, which has recently appeared in its Pathria is known for his work on Superfluidity in liquid helium, Lorentz transformation of thermodynamic quantities, a rigorous evaluation of lattice sums and finite-size effects in phase transitions/5.

Following is the basic postulate of statistical mechanics. "An isolated system in equilibrium is equally likely to be in any of its accessible states".

For an isolated system, the energy of the system is conserved and independent of time. There. 'This is an excellent book from which to learn the methods and results of statistical mechanics.'

$\begingroup$ It's worth pointing out that basic statistical mechanics starts by examining non-interacting particles. The reason it's more likely to find the particles of a gas spread around the room and not bunched in the corner is not because of repulsive forces minimizing the interaction potential.

It is because there are more ways to spread out than there are to bunch up.First of all, i apologize for answer that late User. I personally have studied Statistical Mechanics | Franz Schwabl | Springer, and i strongly recommend you this book.
