The text is particularly /5(15). Statistical Mechanics of Particles. In this lecture note, basic principles of Statistical Mechanics are examined. Topics covered includes: Thermodynamics, probability theory, kinetic theory, classical statistical mechanics, interacting systems, quantum statistical mechanics, and identical particles.

Chapter III contains a preliminary introduction to statistical mechanics, with an emphasis on the Brownian motion, which is the most important example of statistical fluctuations.

This chapter covers an exact formulation of the kinetic theory of gases. Physics teachers and students will find this book invaluable. Thermodynamics and. A full introduction to kinetic theory is provided, including its applications to transport phenomena and chemical kinetics.

A highlight of the textbook is its discussion of modern applications, such as laser-based diagnostics. The book concludes with a thorough presentation of the. An updated and expanded translation of the highly popular Russian textbook, Introduction to Thermodynamics and Kinetic Theory of Matter examines equilibrium and kinetic properties of matter - gas, liquid, and solid - using the general principles of thermodynamics and kinetic theory.

Readable and accessible throughout, this book provides both thermodynamic and statistical points of view. Well, the kinetic theory of gases lets us relate the kinetic energy of the molecules in a gas to the temperature, volume, and pressure of the gas.

The purpose of this book is to provide a readable introduction to statistical thermodynamics, show its utility and the way the results obtained lead to useful generalizations for practical application.

The book also illustrates the difficulties that arise in the statistical thermodynamics of dense fluids as seen in the discussion of liquids. An Introduction to Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics The remainder of the book deals with statistical mechanics - the study of small systems interacting with huge reservoirs.

The changes to this second edition have been made after more than 10 years classroom testing and student feedback. gases distribution equations. Also, it is convenient, in formulating Statistical Mechanics, to refer to some basic knowledge of Quantum Mechanics, whereas our treatment of Kinetic Theory will be completely classical.

Whereas my exposition of Statistical Mechanics will be reasonably advanced, that of Kinetic Theory will be mostly quite elementary (except towards the end of x6).File Size: 1MB.

Unlike most other texts on the subject, this clear, concise introduction to the theory of microscopic bodies treats the modern theory of critical phenomena.

The other 3 books in the discipline's bibliography are: • M.W. Zemansky and R. I recommend the book ''A Modern Course in Statistical Physics'' by Reichl. It starts with phenomenological thermodynamics, covers both equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, and discusses a wide range of applications, not only ideal and real gases.

Its level of rigor is that of typical books on theoretical physics. Of course, we can extend statistical mechanics to non-equilibrium phenomena, and kinetic theory to include quantum effects.

In this case, we are talking about the same theory, non-equilibrium quantum field theory, and the distinction between statistical mechanics and kinetic theory becomes useless.

Examines basic concepts and the First Law, Second Law, equilibria, Nernst's Heat Theorem, and the kinetic theory of gases. Includes an index and a wealth of figures. An important resource for students and physicists, it can be read independently by those who wish to focus on individual topics.

edition. The account of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics in Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics is based on entropy and its maximization. Building from first principles, it gives a transparent explanation of the physical behaviour of equilibrium thermodynamic systems, and it presents a comprehensive, self-contained account of the modern.
