Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Statistical Thermodynamics


Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Statistical Thermodynamics

This graduate-level book presents a self-contained exposition of fundamental topics in modern equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics. The text follows a balanced approach between the macroscopic (thermodynamic) and microscopic (statistical) points of view. One notable feature is the large number of problems. Simple applications are given in 71 exercises, while more elaborate challenges are contained in 47 problems, some of which are useful for student projects.


 Reviews:

"For a physicist teaching up-to-date thermodynamics and statistical mechanics for the first time, the book effectively creates a good lesson plan."
Physics Today, Amador Muriel

"One notable and very nice feature of the book is the large number of exercises and problems, some of them quite challenging and non-standard."
Alessandro Giuliani, Mathematical Reviews
