A direction in Statistical Thermodynamics explores the actual features of the technique of statistical thermodynamics with no using complex mathematical equipment. This e-book is split into 14 chapters that concentrate on an accurate assertion of the Gibbsian ensemble conception couched in quantum-mechanical phrases all through.
The introductory chapters emphasize the concept that of equilibrium, part house, the primary in their quantization, and the basics of quantum mechanics and spectroscopy. those subject matters are via an exposition of the statistical technique, revealing that the constitution of the actual thought is heavily modeled on mathematical information. A bankruptcy makes a speciality of desk bound ensembles and the restatement of the 1st, moment, and 3rd legislation of Thermodynamics. the remainder chapters spotlight a few of the really expert functions of statistical thermodynamics, together with genuine and degenerate gases, uncomplicated solids, radiation, magnetic platforms, nonequilibrium states, and fluctuations. those chapters additionally supply a rigorous derivation of Boltzmann's equation, the H-theorem, and the vexing paradox that arises whilst microscopic reversibility needs to be reconciled with irreversible habit within the huge.
This booklet can be utilized for 2 semesters within the junior or senior years, or as a first-year graduate direction in statistical thermodynamics.
