Product description

Review

'This book is a superb introduction to the key concepts of statistical mechanics, thoroughly modern in approach with current topics emphasized as well as basic principles. Baierlein's characteristic clarity of exposition makes the book ideal for self-study as well as for classroom use.' H. Eugene Stanley, Boston University

'Thermal Physics is conceptually clear, yet mathematically rigorous. The book is unique in its approach in that it moves from the familiar to the abstract. The initial chapters of the book provide a review of freshman thermodynamics and a bridge to the rest of the text, the topics of classical statistical mechanics and quantum statistics. A class based on the text will well prepare students for a graduate class in thermal physics.' S. C. Tegler, Northern Arizona University

Book Description

This textbook provides a clear, instructive and highly readable introduction to thermal physics. Written by an experienced teacher, it gives a comprehensive grounding in thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and kinetic theory and also includes developments including Bose-Einstein condensation and critical phenomena. Suitable for both undergraduates and graduates in physics and astronomy. A solutions manual is also available (ISBN 0521 658608).
