Item description for Statistical Thermodynamics and Properties of Matter by Lucienne Couture & Robert Zitoun...
Statistical Thermodynamics and Properties of Matter is written with the advanced undergraduate and graduate student in mind. Its aim is to familiarize the student with the approach that a physicist would take, for example, when tackling problems related to quantum mechanics or thermodynamics. The textbook is organized as a progressive development of statistical theory, which is treated in two steps. First, an elementary development is given that describes systems of noninteracting particles: ideal molecular gasses, ideal paramagnetism, photon and phonon gases, superfluid helium, free electrons in metals. Second, Gibbs Ensemble Theory is developed and applied to systems of interacting particles: magnetic phases, real gases and liquids, superconductors and phase transitions. Theoretical chapters are interwoven with chapters on the properties of matter; various physical phenomena are treated both from an experimental point of view and as a direct application of theoretical concepts.

Very good book Oct 11, 2003
This is a great book for anyone that is taking a materials statistical thermo class or just a thermo class with an emphasis on materials. There's a good section devoted to crystal thermodynamics, that's quite useful. It also covers magnetic materials, superconductivity, and real gases and liquids. Overall, it's a very well written book that takes you from basic concepts to very advanced ones, without loosing one in the process.
