A lot of previous books either discuss the subject at a too-elementary level throughout, or are graduate texts themselves that assume an undergraduate-level introduction to the subject. Enter your mobile number or email address below and we’ll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.
Alex Saliniemi marked it as to-read Apr 13, Part 1 develops the basic ideas of statistical mechanics, as illustrated by a complete derivation of the entropy of the classical ideal gas based on Boltzmann’s definition. The introdution on this book is distressing, because at any point in statisticaal demonstrations you have to double check every step in the formulas elaboration.
