Summary

This book examines the latest developments in statistical mechanics--a branch of physical chemistry that uses statistical techniques to product, the properties and the behavior of chemical systems. It begins with a review of some of the essential concepts and then discusses recent developments in both equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. It covers liquid and phase transitions, renormalization theory, Monte Carlo techniques, and chaos.
