This book gives a clear and logical exposition of the basic method of ensembles in Statistical Mechanics as developed by J.W. Gibbs. Beginning with the Liouville theorem, a brief but useful introduction to the classical statistical mechanics is provided. Then the quantum picture is outlined and basic postulate of quantum statistical mechanics are stated. The discussion of the symmetry of wave function and its effect on counting is given in detail. The relation between statistical mechanics and thermodynamics is worked out and the Gibbs paradox is discussed in a lucid way. The concept of entropy is related to the information theory. Various ensembles are constructed and used to derive the Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac ideal gases, topics like liquid He electrons in metals, and white dwarfs are given adequate coverage. Quantum Hall effect, random walk and Fourier analysis of a random fluctuation are devoted sufficient space to make it a useful and fascinating book. The book concludes with a discussion of the Ising model and a modern treatment of the critical phenomena. Problems at the end of each chapter widen the area covered and also help to deepen the understanding of the material given. This book is written to introduce the subject to advanced undergraduates in physics and chemistry or to graduates in engineering classes. The present edition contains new material including a chapter on Irreversible Thermodynamics and sections dealing with density matrix and superconductivity.

Buchbeschreibung Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA Auflage: 3. vollst. überarb. u. stark erw. Auflage. Hardcover. Zustand: gut. The editors of this Encyclopedia, earlier editions of which met with international acclaim, have now provided a fully revised, expanded and updated third edition of this comprehensive reference work. In two volumes, 500 experts -- among them several Nobel laureates and numerous other scientific award winners -- offer a comprehensive and topical account of physics and the physical world. The volumes comprise more than 500 articles, which have either been completely updated or are altogether new, covering the latest terminology and techniques in physics, including atomic trapping and cooling, biophotonics, econophysics, the formation of stars and planets, quantum communication, space science and technology, and traffic flow. George L. Trigg, an internationally experienced and qualified senior editor in Physics, lives in New Paltz/New York. For many years he was co-editor of the most renowned expert journal in Physics, Physical Review Letters. Professor Trigg and the late Professor Rita G. Lerner were co-editors for the Encyclopedia of Physics from its first edition, which was published in 1981 and won international praise.
