Summary: This direct, accessible approach starts with statistical mechanics, advancing to elementary statistical thermodynamics and the statistical thermodynamics of interacting systems (imperfect gases, liquids, liquid solutions) and solids. Kinetic theory, both of transport properties of gases and of dense phases, receives a through treatment, as do new concepts for treating equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical processes.
