"A huge variety of workouts of a large variety of hassle make this e-book much more useful…a reliable addition to the literature on thermodynamics on the undergraduate level." — Philosophical Magazine
Although written on an introductory point, this wide-ranging textual content offers vast insurance of themes of present curiosity in equilibrium statistical mechanics. certainly, yes conventional themes are given slightly condensed therapy to permit room for a survey of more moderen advances.
The publication is split into 4 significant sections. Part I deals with the foundations of quantum statistical mechanics and comprises discussions of power degrees, states and eigenfunctions, degeneracy and different issues. Part II examines platforms composed of autonomous molecules or of different autonomous subsystems. themes diversity from perfect monatomic gasoline and monatomic crystals to polyatomic fuel and configuration of polymer molecules and rubber elasticity. An exam of structures of interacting molecules contains the 9 chapters in Part ailing, reviewing such topics as lattice facts, imperfect gases and dilute liquid suggestions. Part IV covers quantum facts and contains sections on Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein records, photon gasoline and free-volume theories of quantum liquids.
Each bankruptcy comprises difficulties various in hassle — starting from easy numerical workouts to small-scale "research" propositions. furthermore, supplementary examining lists for every bankruptcy invite scholars to pursue the topic at a extra complicated point. Readers are assumed to have studied thermodynamics, calculus, common differential equations and basic quantum mechanics.
Because of the pliability of the bankruptcy preparations, this publication specially lends itself to exploit in a one-or two-semester graduate path in chemistry, a one-semester senior or graduate path in physics or an introductory direction in statistical mechanics.
