    schema:reviewBody ""An Introductory Course of Statistical Mechanics introduces the subject to readers without any prior knowledge of the subject. In most textbooks, Statistical Mechanics appears to be a branch of Condensed Matter Physics. This book has a different perspective. It gives great importance to relativistic systems, thus paving the way for various applications of Statistical Mechanics, from nuclear reactions to Astrophysics and Cosmology. Non-relativistic systems and their applications to Condensed Matter Physics are not abandoned either: there are discussions on gases, liquids and magnetic systems. The book ends with one chapter on Phase Transitions and one on Boltzmann equation. Overall, the book presents Statistical Mechanics from a broader perspective encompassing many branches of Physics."--Jacket." ;
