Opis: Statistical Physics - Ian Ford

A comprehensive, clear introduction into the basics of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, that fits all undergraduate physics curricula. This unique approach to this key topic within the physics undergraduate curriculum bases everything on pictures and intuition, to which mathematics adds a definitive structure. The book focuses from the beginning on entropy as the important quantity and introduces it thoroughly in the context of classical thermodynamics. It also includes problems with solutions and extensive illustrations, as well as supplementary reading sections on Langevin dynamics and Fluctuation Theorems and an expansion of several existing themes.Preface xiii 1.
