This comprehensive work provides a rigorous introduction to statistical mechanics, which aims to relate microscopic properties of matter to observed macroscopic, or bulk, behavior of physical systems. The foundations of statistical mechanics, laid down by Gibbs, are presented in detail along with an introductory chapter on thermodynamics. Other topics covered include model systems and the thermodynamic limit; theories of phase transitions; fluctuations and correlations; exactly solved models; scaling theory; and the renormalization group. An important feature of the book is many problems and worked solutions which provide a timely demonstration of current research activity in the field.
