An Introduction to Statistical Thermodynamics (Dover Books by Terrell L. Hill

By Terrell L. Hill

"A huge variety of routines of a wide variety of hassle make this ebook much more useful…a stable addition to the literature on thermodynamics on the undergraduate level." — Philosophical Magazine
Although written on an introductory point, this wide-ranging textual content presents wide assurance of themes of present curiosity in equilibrium statistical mechanics. certainly, definite conventional themes are given a bit of condensed therapy to permit room for a survey of newer advances.
The e-book is split into 4 significant sections. Part I deals with the rules of quantum statistical mechanics and contains discussions of power degrees, states and eigenfunctions, degeneracy and different issues. Part II examines structures composed of self reliant molecules or of different self sustaining subsystems. subject matters variety from perfect monatomic gasoline and monatomic crystals to polyatomic fuel and configuration of polymer molecules and rubber elasticity. An exam of platforms of interacting molecules includes the 9 chapters in Part ailing, reviewing such topics as lattice facts, imperfect gases and dilute liquid strategies. Part IV covers quantum records and contains sections on Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein statistics, photon fuel and free-volume theories of quantum liquids.
Each bankruptcy contains difficulties various in hassle — starting from easy numerical routines to small-scale "research" propositions. furthermore, supplementary studying lists for every bankruptcy invite scholars to pursue the topic at a extra complex point. Readers are assumed to have studied thermodynamics, calculus, uncomplicated differential equations and straight forward quantum mechanics.
Because of the pliability of the bankruptcy preparations, this booklet specially lends itself to take advantage of in a one-or two-semester graduate path in chemistry, a one-semester senior or graduate path in physics or an introductory path in statistical mechanics.
