A statistical method is called non-parametric if it makes no assumption on the population distribution or sample size. This is in contrast with most parametric methods in elementary statistics Author: Christian Akrong Hesse. Noteworthy for the philosophical subtlety of its foundations and the elegance of its problem-solving methods, statistical mechanics can be employed in a broad range of applications — among them, astrophysics, biology, chemistry, nuclear and solid state physics, communications engineering, metallurgy, and : Dover Publications.

Introductory Statistical Thermodynamics is a text for an introductory one-semester course in statistical thermodynamics for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in physics and engineering. The book offers a high level of detail in derivations of all equations and results. This information is necessary for students to grasp difficult concepts in physics that are needed to move on to. Statistical mechanics is the art of turning the microscopic laws of physics into a de-scription of Nature on a macroscopic scale. Suppose you’ve got theoretical physics cracked. Suppose you know all the funda-mental laws of Nature, the properties of the elementary particles and the forces at play between Size: 1MB.

elementary principles in statistical mechanics developed with especial reference to the rational foundation of thermodynamics by j. willard gibbs ~c~a~ma~m/tk yale university new york charles scribner's sons london: edward arnold This volume is based on courses on Statistical Mechanics which I have taught for many years at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. My objective is to treat classical statistical mechanics and its modem applications, especially interacting particles, correlation functions, and time-dependent phenomena. My development is based primarily on Gibbs's ensemble formulation.4/5(1).

This book is a little gem: it offers a complete course in Statistical Mechanics all the way from Hamiltonian dynamics to the Fokker-Planck equation in pages. All the classical examples in both classical and quantum statistical mechanics can be found in the text, presented in a very thorough manner (although not "for dummies").Cited by: Statistical mechanics is an incredibly difficult subject to gain any intuition on, but Gibbs does an absolutely superb job of explaining the intuitions he needed to invent the theory, and his method for understanding how Statistical Mechanics can so accurately explain the Thermodynamics of our by: A list of notable textbooks in thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, arranged by category and date.

The approach of this book to the subject is very different than the above mentioned books. Statistical mechanics is one of the fundamental branches of theoretical physics and chemistry, and deals with many systems such as gases, liquids, solids, and even molecules which have many atoms.

The book consists of three parts. Part I gives the principles, with elementary applications to. The book focuses on the links connecting statistical and continuum mechanics and, starting from elementary introductions to both theories, it leads to actual research themes.

Elementary Lectures in Statistical Mechanics is meant as a (relatively sophis ticated) undergraduate or (relatively straightforward) graduate text for physics students.

It should also be suitable as a graduate text for physical chemistry stu dents. Undergrad Level: An Introduction to Thermal Physics (Schroeder) is the one that seems to be recommended more than any other book. It's very user-friendly and informal (probably the most user-friendly stat mech textbook on the market).

That said. I'm planing on learning Statistical Mechanics by myself. I would like to hear recomendations on what you think are the best Statistical Mechanics books. My interest right now would be books that are on a undergraduate level, with detailed explanation, examples and problems, but you could also recomend higher level books for future references.Elementary Statistical Physics book.
