The Principles of Statistical Mechanics (Dover Books on Physics) Richard Tolman wrote his masterpiece "Principles of Statistical Mechanics" and since then there has been nothing to surpass it. His work continues to be referenced in books and journals because people use it as the "gold standard" for their 's not just a practical simplifiedCited by: Principles of Statistical Thermodynamics (Part I) covers the first and second laws of thermodynamics, elementary statistical methods in physics, and other topics, including an especially clear and enlightening discussion of thermodynamic potentials and their applications/5(8).

Written for graduate or advanced students as well as for professionals in physics and chemistry, this book includes the fundamental concepts of statistical physics and physical kinetics. These concepts relate to a wide range of physical objects, such as liquids and solids, gases and Principles of statistical physics book, clusters and systems of complex molecules.

Elementary Principles In Statistical Mechanics. This book explains the following topics: General Notions, The Principle Of Conservation Of Extension-in-phase, Thermodynamic Analogies, Application Of the Principle Of Conservation Of Extension-in-phase To The Theory Of Errors, Average Values in A Canonical Ensemble Of Systems, Extension-in-configuration and Extension-in-velocity.

Several guiding principles determined the design of this course. First I completely agree with Josef Honerkamp who in his book Statistical Physics notes that statistical physics is much more than statistical mechanics.

A similar notion is expressed by James Sethna in his book Entropy, Order Parameters, and Complexity. Indeed statistical physics. Statistical Physics Lecture Notes. This book covers the following topics: Statistical physics is an unfinished and highly active part of ples of statistical mechanics, Thermodynamic quantities, The Gibbs Distribution, Ideal gas, Statistical ensembles, Fluctuations, Stochastic Processes, Non-Ideal Gases, Phase Equilibrium.

Principles of Statistical Physics and Numerical Modeling. Author Valeriy A Ryabov Published August Download ebook. the book will be useful for students and professionals wishing to receive a contemporary understanding of statistical physics and use the methods in their modeling of properties of materials and biomolecular systems.

The book opens with concise, unusually clear introductory chapters on classical statistical mechanics, quantum statistical mechanics and the relation of statistical mechanics to thermodynamics. Then follows a wide-ranging, detailed examination of various applications. Chapter 4 deals with fluctuations.

"The present book, however, is unique that it both is written in a very pedagogic, easily comprehensible style, and, nevertheless, goes from the basic principles all the way to these modern topics, containing several chapters on the various approaches of mean field theory, and a chapter on computer simulation.

Many people like Tolman's book. I read most of it and here are my thoughts. 1) The physics hasn't changed, although it has certainly moved on beyond what's in Tolman's book.

That's ok for an "intro" book, of course, but you can't read this book and think you know all of Stat Mech. 2) Some of the terms and notation are old-fashioned. An Introduction to Thermodynamics, The Kinetic Theory of Gases, and Statistical Mechanics (Principles of Physics Series) by Sears, Francis Weston and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Statistical Physics provides an introduction to the basic principles of statistical mechanics.

Statistical mechanics is one of the fundamental branches of theoretical physics and chemistry, and deals with many systems such as gases, liquids, solids, and even molecules which. Statistical Physics, Mechanics. The Principles Of Statistical Mechanics Tolman Oxford At The Clarendon Press Statistical physics is a branch of physics that uses methods of probability theory and statistics, and particularly the mathematical tools for dealing with large populations and approximations, in solving physical problems.

It can describe a wide variety of fields with an inherently stochastic nature. Its applications include many problems in the fields of physics, biology, chemistry.
