Download PDF by Piero Olla: An Introduction to Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics

By Piero Olla

This textbook bargains a sophisticated undergraduate or preliminary graduate point creation to themes resembling kinetic thought, equilibrium statistical mechanics and the idea of fluctuations from a contemporary point of view. the purpose is to supply the reader with the mandatory instruments of chance thought and thermodynamics (especially the thermodynamic potentials) to allow next learn at complex graduate point. whilst, the publication bargains a bird's eye view on arguments which are frequently ignored frequently curriculum courses. 

Further good points comprise a spotlight at the interdisciplinary nature of the topic and in-depth dialogue of other interpretations of the idea that of entropy. whereas a few familiarity with easy options of thermodynamics and chance concept is believed, this doesn't expand past what's quite often received in uncomplicated undergraduate curriculum courses.
