Statistical mechanics : fundamentals and modern applications

Author: Richard E Wilde; Surjit Singh
Publisher: New York : Wiley, ©1998.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Statistical Mechanics begins with a refresher course in the essentials of modern statistical mechanics which, on its own, can serve as a handy pocket guide to basic definitions and formulas. Part II is devoted to equilibrium statistical mechanics. Readers will find in-depth coverage of phase transitions, critical phenomena, liquids, molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo techniques, polymers, and more. Part III focuses on  Read more...
