By D. ter Haar

Following the Boltzmann-Gibbs method of statistical mechanics, this new version of Dr ter Haar's very important textbook, parts of Statistical Mechanics, presents undergraduates and extra senior lecturers with a radical advent to the topic. every one bankruptcy is by way of an issue part and distinctive bibliography.

the 1st six chapters of the e-book supply an intensive advent to the elemental equipment of statistical mechanics and certainly the 1st 4 can be utilized as an introductory path in themselves. The final 3 chapters supply extra element at the equation of nation, with exact emphasis at the van der Waals fuel; the second-quantisation method of many-body platforms, with an exam of two-time temperature-dependent eco-friendly features; section transitions, together with a variety of approximation tools for treating the Ising version, a quick dialogue of the precise resolution of the two-dimensional sq. Ising version, and brief introductions to renormalisation crew tools and the Yang and Lee conception of part transitions. within the challenge part which follows every one bankruptcy the reader is requested to accomplish proofs of uncomplicated concept and to use that conception to numerous actual occasions. each one bankruptcy bibliography contains papers that are of ancient curiosity. another aid to the reader are the options to chose difficulties which seem on the finish of the book.
