Statistical Mechanics
By

Rating
Statistical Mechanics begins with a refresher course in the essentials of modern statistical mechanics which, on its own, can serve as a handy pocket guide to basic definitions and formulas. Part II is devoted to equilibrium statistical mechanics. Readers will find in-depth coverage of phase transitions, critical phenomena, liquids, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo techniques, polymers, and more. Part III focuses on nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and progresses in a logical manner from near-equilibrium systems, for which linear responses can be used, to far-from-equilibrium systems requiring nonlinear differential equations.
