New PDF release: An Introduction to Statistical Thermodynamics (Dover Books

By Terrell L. Hill

"A huge variety of routines of a large diversity of hassle make this ebook much more useful…a sturdy addition to the literature on thermodynamics on the undergraduate level." — Philosophical Magazine
Although written on an introductory point, this wide-ranging textual content offers broad assurance of themes of present curiosity in equilibrium statistical mechanics. certainly, sure conventional subject matters are given just a little condensed remedy to permit room for a survey of newer advances.
The publication is split into 4 significant sections. Part I deals with the rules of quantum statistical mechanics and comprises discussions of strength degrees, states and eigenfunctions, degeneracy and different subject matters. Part II examines structures composed of self sustaining molecules or of alternative self reliant subsystems. subject matters variety from excellent monatomic fuel and monatomic crystals to polyatomic gasoline and configuration of polymer molecules and rubber elasticity. An exam of platforms of interacting molecules includes the 9 chapters in Part unwell, reviewing such matters as lattice records, imperfect gases and dilute liquid options. Part IV covers quantum facts and contains sections on Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein facts, photon gasoline and free-volume theories of quantum liquids.
Each bankruptcy contains difficulties various in hassle — starting from uncomplicated numerical routines to small-scale "research" propositions. additionally, supplementary examining lists for every bankruptcy invite scholars to pursue the topic at a extra complex point. Readers are assumed to have studied thermodynamics, calculus, straightforward differential equations and straight forward quantum mechanics.
Because of the flexibleness of the bankruptcy preparations, this publication specifically lends itself to exploit in a one-or two-semester graduate path in chemistry, a one-semester senior or graduate direction in physics or an introductory direction in statistical mechanics.
