Title Equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical thermodynamics / Michel Le Bellac, Fabrice Mortessagne and G. George Batrouni
Published Cambridge, UK ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2004


Description 1 online resource (xvi, 616 pages) : illustrations
Contents Thermostatics -- Statistical entropy and Boltzmann distribution -- Canonical and grand-canonical ensembles: applications -- Critical phenomena -- Quantum statistics -- Irreversible processes: macroscopic theory -- Numerical simulations -- Irreversible processes: kinetic theory -- Topics in non-equilibrium statistical mechanics
Summary This graduate-level text gives a self-contained exposition of fundamental topics in modern equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics. The text follows a balanced approach between the macroscopic (thermodynamic) and microscopic (statistical) points of view. This advanced textbook will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in physics
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 605-610) and index
