Item description for Statistical Mechanics: An Intermediate Course (Statistical Physics) by Giuseppe Morandi, E. Ercolessi, F. Napoli & Giuseppe Morandi...

This book covers the foundations of classical thermodynamics, with emphasis on the use of differential forms of classical and quantum statistical mechanics, and also on the foundational aspects. In both contexts, a number of applications are considered in detail, such as the general theory of response, correlations and fluctuations, and classical and quantum spin systems. In the quantum case, a self-contained introduction to path integral methods is given. In addition, the book discusses phase transitions and critical phenomena, with applications to the Landau theory and to the Ginzburg-Landau theory of superconductivity, and also to the phenomenon of Bose condensation and of superfluidity. Finally, there is a careful discussion on the use of the renormalization group in the study of critical phenomena.

Reviews - What do customers think about Statistical Mechanics: An Intermediate Course (Statistical Physics)?

Best Stat Mech Book I've read  Jul 13, 2003
Although it is a little weak in the coverage of all applications of statistical mechanics, my overall rating for this book is excellent. It's comprehensible inclusion of mathematics such as group theory and topology in a typical stat. mech. exposition as well as its superlative treatment of spin hamiltonians are among the reasons for my enthusiastic rating.
