Item description for Statistical Mechanics Made Simple by Daniel C. Mattis & Robert H. Swendsen...

This second edition extends and improves on the first, already an acclaimed and original treatment of statistical concepts insofar as they impact theoretical physics and form the basis of modern thermodynamics. This book illustrates through myriad examples the principles and logic used in extending the simple laws of idealized Newtonian physics and quantum physics into the real world of noise and thermal fluctuations. In response to the many helpful comments on the first edition, important features to this edition include additional figures, new problems, and worked-out solutions to some representative problems.Armed with the wit and knowledge of a new coauthor, the topics of renormalization group and Monte Carlo numerical techniques are now treated on a par with more conventional elements of statistical thermodynamics. The addition of these important subjects thus allows a coherent picture of thermal physics to emerge. This new edition incorporates important aspects of many-body theory and of phase transitions. It should better serve the contemporary student, while offering to the instructor a wider selection of topics from which to craft lectures on topics ranging from thermodynamics and random matrices to thermodynamic Green functions and critical exponents, from the propagation of sound in solids and fluids to the nature of quasiparticles in quantum liquids and in transfer matrices.

Reviews - What do customers think about Statistical Mechanics Made Simple?

BEWARE: false advertising  Aug 15, 2009
I recently received this advertisement from World Scientific:
I am pleased to inform you that we have published some important
Physics textbooks for 1st and 2nd year undergraduates. A few
good examples are :-
7) Statistical Mechanics Made Simple
by Daniel Mattis (Utah)
I teach Stat Mech to 2nd year undergrads (engineers), and I can say
with confidence that this book is completely inappropriate for
students at that level.
