Summary

Based on the author's graduate course taught over many years, this book takes a 'reductionist' view of statistical mechanics. It implicitly assumes that the physics of complex systems as observed is connected to fundamental physical laws represented at the molecular level by Newtonian mechanics or quantum mechanics. After describing the fundamental principles of equilibrium statistical mechanics, the author describes applications to the different phases, before dealing with dynamics. Written for a one year graduate course in statistical mechanics for physicists, chemists and chemical engineers, problems are included following each chapter.
