Publisher: The University of Virginia
Number of pages: 98

Description:
This book, Modern Statistical Mechanics, is an attempt to cover the gap between what is taught in a conventional statistical mechanics class (undergraduate or graduate) and between what is necessary to understand current research involving many-body physics. The aim is to introduce some of the basics of many-body physics to a wide audience.
