With an emphasis on finding solutions to common problems in chemistry, topics covered include: The Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution for molecules in a gas, partition functions, and calculation of thermodynamic properties; ensembles (including the grand canonical ensemble), independent particles, and thermodynamic properties of atoms and molecules; and practical introductions to quantum statistical mechanics and classical statistical mechanics. Also covered are applications to electrons in metals and semiconductors; bosons and fermions; imperfect gases; transport properties; dipole moments in electric and magnetic fields; distribution functions and correlation functions in fluids; and time-dependent techniques for handling both simple and modern dynamical problems--the Liouville equation, time-correlation functions, and the Langevin equation.

From the Back Cover:

From the basics of thermodynamics to solutions for modern dynamicalproblems --the complete beginner's guide to statisticalmechanics.

Unlike most books on statistical mechanics, this one is written foradvanced students in chemistry, chemical engineering, biophysics,and related fields. It targets readers with no prior exposure tostatistical mechanics and provides a complete introduction to allthe important principles, concepts, and equations, whilemaintaining a level of mathematical sophistication that mostadvanced chemistry students will find manageable. The emphasis ison finding solutions to common problems in chemistry. Topicscovered include:
* The Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution for molecules in agas, partition functions, and calculation of thermodynamicproperties
* Ensembles (including the grand canonical ensemble), independentparticles, and thermodynamic properties of atoms andmolecules
* Practical introductions to quantum statistical mechanics andclassical statistical mechanics
* Applications to electrons in metals and semiconductors; bosonsand fermions; imperfect gases; transport properties; dipole momentsin electric and magnetic fields; and distribution functions andcorrelation functions in fluids
* Time-dependent techniques for handling both simple and moderndynamical problems --the Liouville equation, time-correlationfunctions, and the Langevin equation.

Clearly written, and with a minimum of theory, StatisticalMechanics for Chemists takes you step by step through mathematicalmanipulations and explains the physical and chemical bases for eachprocedure. It is a valuable resource for advanced students inchemistry, chemical engineering, biophysics, and related fields.
