This introduction to statistical mechanics offers comprehensive coverage of equilibrium and nonequilibrium topics. Including discussion of liquid theory; including perturbation theory, and two lengthy chapters on time-correlation functions. Explanations of necessary mathematics in appendices, applications and frequent comparisons to experimental data, 30 to 40 chapter problems, complete chapter bibliographies, and a computer program for the radial distribution function of hard-sphere fluids that assists in making reliable calculations are included.
