4.0 out of 5 stars Only modern stat mech book, 21 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics (Paperback)
The best part of this book is that it is modern. You have chapters on Monte Carlo simulations, the Ising model, and more. You don't get long chapters on the partition function of an ideal gas, for example. The bad part about this book is that it is not immediately transparent if you're reading stat mech for the first time. I like it more the more I know about stat mech, but it's not a good beginner's book, and I think it's better to have another book with it - maybe Hill or McQuarrie - since it's not really that long either. Still, recommended (get the soln. manual too) with these caveats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern and concise approach to the subject., 17 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics (Paperback)
This is a clearly exposed text on Statistical Mechanics, with a very modern approach. I find the problems particularly interesting (look for the Solution Manual of this title).
