Item description for From Microphysics to Macrophysics: Methods and Applications of Statistical Physics. Volume II (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics) by Dirk ter Haar Roger Balian...

This text not only provides a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics but also exhibits the universality of the chain of ideas that leads from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour of matter. A wide range of applications teaches students how to make use of the concepts, and many exercises will help to deepen their understanding. Drawing on both quantum mechanics and classical physics, the book follows modern research in statistical physics.

Volume II applies statistical methods to systems governed by quantum effects, in particular to solid state physics, explaining properties due to the crystal structure or to the lattice excitations or to the electrons. Liquid helium is discussed and radiative equilibrium and transport are studied. The last chapters are devoted to non-equilibrium processes and to kinetic equations, with many applications included.

This softcover edition accommodates the many requests to make this widely used and often cited classical text available again.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Microphysics to Macrophysics: Methods and Applications of Statistical Physics. Volume II (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics)?

Interesting treatment from an information point of view  Aug 23, 2005
This is one of the earliest comprehensive treatment of Statistical Mechanics (SM) from the perspective of information. The presentation of the foundation of SM here is much clearer and unified compared to the standard understanding, due to the adoption of the maximum entropy principle (and the subjecive interpretation of probability).The issue of entropy and irreversibility also received interesting discussion here.
An earlier book that treats SM in the similar form is Amnon Katz' book "Principles of statistical mechanics ; the information theory approach".
