    Statistical Mechanics Kerson Huang. Unlike most other texts on the subject, this clear, concise introduction to the theory of microscopic bodies treats the modern theory of critical phenomena. Provides up-to-date coverage of recent major advances, including a self-contained description of thermodynamics and the classical kinetic theory of gases. Statistical Mechanics 3rd Edition by R K Pathria, Paul D. Beale; One may also get interest into the book - 6. Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics 1st Edition by David Chandler. The approach of this book to the subject is very different than the above mentioned books.

      For a good self study guide, I would suggest Blundell and Blundell's "Concepts in Thermal Physics" it builds up the thermodynamics part for a good 1/3 of the book but then the rest is statistical mech, has several applications of both, many practical and it includes several discussions in advanced topics, my favorite was the derivation of. This book is a very early systematic treatment of the application of the field-theoretical methods developed after the Second World War to the quantum mechanical many-body problem at finite temperature. It describes various techniques that remain basic .

    Rigorous Statistical Mechanics has a long tradition, starting in the s with Dobrushin, Lanford, Ruelle, Sinai and many other mathematical physicists. Yet, surprisingly, there has not been an up-to-date textbook on an introductory level. This gap is bridged masterly by the present book. The book is devoted to the study of the correlation effects in many-particle systems. It presents the advanced methods of quantum statistical mechanics (equilibrium and nonequilibrium), and shows their effectiveness and operational ability in applications to problems of quantum solid-state theory, quantum theory of magnetism and the kinetic theory.

Advanced Statistical Mechanics: Advanced Statistical Mechanics is a course on the renormalization group methods in statistical and condensed matter physics and many-body theory.

It relies on the textbook by John Cardy (right) as well as on various other available material. Pathria is also the author of a well-known graduate text book on Statistical Mechanics, which has recently appeared in its Pathria is known for his work on Superfluidity in liquid helium, Lorentz transformation of thermodynamic quantities, a rigorous evaluation of lattice sums and finite-size effects in phase transitions/5.

"The book is devoted to the study of the correlation effects in many-particle systems. It presents the advanced methods of quantum statistical mechanics (equilibrium and nonequilibrium), and shows their effectiveness and operational ability in applications to problems of quantum solid-state theory, quantum theory of magnetism and the kinetic theory.

The uses of this two theories are completely different. Statistical Mechanics is used to see how by modelling the behavior of microscopic constituents you can predict the macroscopic phenomenas that you observe. On the other hand Many Body Theory uses first principle techniques to see what happens microscopically when you have large no of particles in your system.

A list of notable textbooks in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, arranged by category and date. Front cover of the second edition of Herbert Callen's text.

Mandl, Franz (). The Density of States. The number of microstates corresponding to a macrostate is called the density of is written \(\Omega(E, V, \dots)\), where the arguments are the macroscopic variables defining the macrostate. Since we assumed the microstates are discrete, that means \(\Omega\) is also a discrete function.

Each variable can only take on specific values, and it is only. Statistical Mechanics is a profoundly important branch of the physical sciences connecting microscopic information to observables in complex many-body systems, and forms the backbone of many research domains in chemistry, material science and molecular biology.5/5(5).

The mathematical structure of statistical mechanics was established by the American physicist Josiah Willard Gibbs in his book Elementary Principles in Statistical Mechanics (), but two earlier physicists, James Clerk Maxwell of Great Britain and Ludwig E. Boltzmann of Austria, are generally credited with having developed the fundamental principles of the field with their work on.

The book is devoted to the study of the correlation effects in many-particle systems. It presents the advanced methods of quantum statistical mechanics (equilibrium and nonequilibrium), and shows their effectiveness and operational ability in applications to problems of quantum solid-state theory.

Historically, the techniques of statistical mechanics proved to be a crucial tool for understanding the deeper laws of physics. Not only is the development of the subject intimately tied with the rst evidence for the existence of atoms, but quantum me-chanics itself was discovered by applying statistical methods to decipher the spectrumFile Size: 1MB.

Why study thermodynamics. Thermodynamics is essentially the study of the internal motions of many body systems. Virtually all substances which we encounter in everyday life are many body systems of some sort or other (e.g., solids, liquids, gases, and light).

Not surprisingly, therefore, thermodynamics is a discipline with an exceptionally wideFile Size: 1MB. The book by Callen also draws heavily on the work by Edwin Jaynes on the relation-ship between statistical physics and information theory as pioneered by Claude Shan-non.

Although somehow debated, this link shows once again that statistical physics is more than statistical mechanics. Information theory provides very helpful insight into.

There are, of course, other many-body systems whose properties can only be explained in terms of quantum mechanics; a gas of diatomic molecules is such a system. For such a system, quantum theory is needed only to explain the properties of the individual molecules, and the many-body problem can then be solved without further reference to Brand: Dover Publications.
