    Description

    A classic textbook of statistical mechanics. Statistical Mechanics has been a must read for graduate students of this field since its publication in 1972.

    Summary Of The Book

    Since it was published in 1972, R. K. Pathria’s book Statistical Mechanics has been a standard text for graduate students and professionals of this field. The original book covered all the essentials of this field and since then, has been updated to include newer discoveries and to better polish the old. The second edition expanded the books and added three new chapters. The edition covered newer topics such as critical phenomena and phase transitions.

    The third edition went even further to add relevance to the book. It added the most up-to-date material on the Bose-Einstein condensation model. It also tackled the most recent developments in the field of degenerate Fermi behavior of ultracold atomic gases. Together with these additions, the third edition includes a section to teach students how to create computer simulations to recreate the thermodynamics of the early universe which aims at making the text more coherent and useful in the digital age while keeping up with the latest research in the field.

    Some of the chapters covered in the book are The Grand Canonical Ensemble, Phase Transitions: Criticality, Universality and Scaling, Elements of Ensemble Theory, The Theory of Simple Gases, The Canonical Ensemble, and The Statistical Basis of Thermodynamics.

    Statistical Mechanics contains new and concise sections of a vast array of topics such as quantized fields, and the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. The main aims of the new edition are to keep up to date and ensure that students get the most out of their reading of this book, and to provide a solid bedrock to build higher and more complex systems for statistical physics.

    About The Authors

    R. K. Pathria is a poet and theoretical physicist.

    He has also written The Theory of Relativity.

    Pathria was born in 1930 near Amritsar. He holds B.Sc and M.Sc degrees, both from Panjab University. Dr. Pathria is renowned for his far-reaching scope of interest which ranges from theoretical physics to Urdu poetry and sociology. He has been distinguished with several awards and honours such as Distinguished Professor Emeritus, the University of Waterloo, Distinguished Teacher award also from the University of Waterloo, and Fellowship of the American Physical Society. He is a prolific research writer and has written over 120 papers dealing with a vast array of topics. Some of these are Lorentz transformation of Thermodynamic Quantities, Superfluidity in Liquid Helium II, A Study of ‘Stochastic Phenomena in Sociology’ and Polymers and the Theory of Numbers.

    Paul D. Beale is a physics professor and author.

    Beale holds a Bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D in Physics. He is presently the professor of physics at the University of Colorado, and has previously been an associate professor and assistant professor at the same university. He was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Oxford University.

    Good buy!!

    The book is one of the best available texts on statistical mechanics. Its language has been well adjusted for the beginner level and it has extensive overviews of undergoing research works in different fields. I, for sure would recommend this for everyone interested in equilibrium statistical mechanics.

    Cheers!!

    One Star

    The most unclear narrative. Definitely not for anybody who is doing their first course in statistical mechanics. Most unintuitive explanations of the material being explained. Do not buy unless you have previous proficiency in quantum mechanics and statistical physics.
