Publisher Comments:

'This is an excellent book from which to learn the methods and results of statistical mechanics.' Nature 'A well written graduate-level text for scientists and engineers... Highly recommended for graduate-level libraries.' Choice


This highly successful text, which first appeared in the year 1972 and has continued to be popular ever since, has now been brought up-to-date by incorporating the remarkable developments in the field of 'phase transitions and critical phenomena' that took place over the intervening years. This has been done by adding three new chapters (comprising over 150 pages and containing over 60 homework problems) which should enhance the usefulness of the book for both students and instructors. We trust that this classic text, which has been widely acclaimed for its clean derivations and clear explanations, will continue to provide further generations of students a sound training in the methods of statistical physics.

Book News Annotation:

A new edition of the postgraduate statistical mechanics text, presenting rigorous challenges to students without sending them into cardiac arrest. Pathria (physics, U. of Waterloo) views his subject as an indispensable tool to physics and takes in hand a complete review of the statistical basis of thermodynamics, the elements of ensemble theory, the canonical ensemble, the formulation of quantum statistics, ideal bose and fermi systems, and the statistical mechanics of interacting systems. New to this edition are three chapters incorporating advances in phase transitions and critical phenomena. The volume features numerous practice problems.

Synopsis:

This text is designed for postgraduate courses in statistical mechanics, and provides a basic grounding in a manner that brings out the essence of the subject with due rigour but without undue pain. This classic text, which was first published in 1972 and has continued to be popular ever since, has now been brought up to date by incorporating the remarkable developments in the field of phase transitions and critical phenomena that have taken place in the intervening years. This has been done by adding three new chapters which will enhance the usefulness of this book both for students and instructors. Widely acclaimed for its clean derivations and clear explanations, Statistical Mechanics in its second edition will continue to provide further generations of students with a solid training in the methods of statistical physics.
