Statistical Mechanics: A Concise Introduction for Chemists by B. Widom

By B. Widom

Statistical mechanics is the theoretical gear used to review the homes of macroscopic platforms - platforms made of many atoms or molecules - and relates these houses to the system's microscopic structure. This ebook is an advent to statistical mechanics, meant for use both by way of complex undergraduates or through starting graduate scholars. the 1st bankruptcy bargains with statistical thermodynamics and goals to fast derive the main normal formulation within the topic. the rest of the ebook then illustrates the appliance of those formulation in conventional components corresponding to the correct fuel and not more conventional components corresponding to the quantum excellent fuel. hugely illustrated with quite a few workouts and labored options, it offers a concise treatise of statistical mechanics perfect to be used on an 8-12 lecture course.
