Concepts in Thermal Physics
Concepts in Thermal Physics
by Stephen Blundell
Edition: Paperback

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, precise and entertaining, 2 April 2009
An excellent introduction to thermal physics. Very little is assumed, and explanations in the appendices account for most of the mathematical complications. Thoroughly covers all major topics of interest in the field, with alternative derivations provided for many topics to further aid understanding. Additional chapters expand on the latest research. Little diversions into areas such as Information entropy, and short biographies for most of the prominent figures help sustain interest. The tone is frequently humorous, but this does not detract from the thrust of the argument. Highly recommended.
