Problems on Statistical Mechanics (Graduate Student Series in Physics)

Problems on Statistical Mechanics (Graduate Student Series in Physics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides over 120 problems with model solutions, illustrating both basic principles and applications that range from solid-state physics to cosmology. An introductory chapter summarizes the basic concepts and results that are needed to tackle the problems, and establishes the notation that is used throughout the book. The problems in the remaining chapters progress from the simpler aspects of thermodynamics and equilibrium statistical ensembles to the more challenging ideas associated with strongly interacting systems and nonequilibrium processes. The book also includes comprehensive solutions to all of the problems. The appendix provides useful mathematical formulae.

Book News Annotation:

A complement to standard textbooks on statistical mechanics at a graduate or advanced undergraduate level. On the basis that insight can only be wrung from assiduous practice in solving problems, presents problems that illustrate both the basic principles and a varied range of applications. The answers follow the questions immediately. Readers are assumed to have or be getting a basic understanding of the principles of statistical mechanics. There is no bibliography.

Synopsis:

A thorough understanding of statistical mechanics depends strongly on the insights and manipulative skills that are acquired through the solving of problems. Problems on Statistical Mechanics provides over 120 problems with model solutions, illustrating both basic principles and applications that range from solid-state physics to cosmology. An introductory chapter provides a summary of the basic concepts and results that are needed to tackle the problems, and also serves to establish the notation that is used throughout the book. The problems themselves occupy five chapters, progressing from the simpler aspects of thermodynamics and equilibrium statistical ensembles to the more challenging ideas associated with strongly interacting systems and nonequilibrium processes. Comprehensive solutions to all of the problems are designed to illustrate efficient and elegant problem-solving techniques. Where appropriate, the authors incorporate extended discussions of the points of principle that arise in the course of the solutions. The appendix provides useful mathematical formulae.
