9780415802611: Statistical Mechanics: An Elementary Outline

Compared to the previous edition where the quantum theoretic development of the subject was chosen from the very beginning, this revised edition presents the classical theory as the launching pad by introducing a number of key concepts so as to make the subject accessible to a wider group of readers. In addition, the technical soundness of presentation has been raised to a higher level by using the concepts of the mixed state and the reduced state as the basic building blocks of the theory as well as relating equilibrium statistical mechanics to the long-term time evolution of the reduced state. The author avoids technically rigorous, formal analysis in favor of a clear understanding at a semi-intuitive level.

Review:

... He [the author] has obviously thought deeply about how best to teach this subject. ... Students will appreciate the full and carefully elaborated solutions presented to many of the posed problems. ... The written text is lucid and informal. ... I would recommend it as a supplementary text ... .
Contemporary Physics, Volume 52, Issue 3, 2011

... a different and insightful explanation of the main elementary material of statistical mechanics. ... I would recommend this book to those who wish to pursue a deeper understanding of statistical mechanics. This makes it best suited for postgraduate courses and beyond. ... For a course at any level, there is plenty of useful material and the book’s less commonly encountered perspectives justify its consideration.
―Richard Henchman, Reviews, Volume 11, 2010
