Thirty years teaching experience have been condensed into this concise introductory book on Statistical Mechanics. Ideal for second and third year undergraduates in physics, applied mathematics, physical chemistry, chemical engineering, metallurgy, materials science and polymer science.

Industry Reviews

Throughout the whole book, 30 teaching years have left traces that: (a) content is adapted to undergraduate level, avoiding complicated mathematical derivations without neglecting their scientific purpose; (b) summaries follow each chapter, repeating its scientific content in compressed form; (c) worked examples, questions and appendices support the learning process. It is recommended to all, even graduate students., Zeitschrift fur Physikalische Chemie
Many advanced books frighten students away but this book shows how to considerably simplify basic mathematics of equilibrium statistical mechanics., Prof. Temperley, formerly University of Cambridge, UK
