Item description for Statistical Mechanics: Rigorous Results by David Ruelle...
This classic book marks the beginning of an era of vigorous mathematical progress in equilibrium statistical mechanics. Its treatment of the infinite system limit has not been superseded, and the discussion of thermodynamic functions and states remains basic for more recent work. The conceptual foundation provided by the Rigorous Results remains invaluable for the study of the spectacular developments of statistical mechanics in the second half of the 20th century.

classic Apr 24, 2009
"Statistical mechanics" is a seminal book about thermodynamic systems, written in 1968. As the subtitle suggests, the mathematical treatment of thermodynamic systems is rigorous. While it is outdated, it can serve as a reference books. I found it useful even though I"m not in physics but statistics.
