It explains concepts from a ground-up approach, starting with probability theory and Boltzmann’s original definition of entropy, through to the statistical mechanics foundations of thermodynamics, and then to actual calculations in classical and quantum statistical mechanics. This therodynamics a statistical foundation for the concept of entropy, which is central to thermal physics. Swendsen is Professor of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University, where he works primarily in computational statistical mechanics.
There are several errors in derivation of the equation though it provides a clear concept in each chapter. This provides a statistical foundation for the concept of entropy, which is central to thermal physics.

Bikram Roy is currently reading it Jun 30, Feb 19, Karpur Shukla rated it it was amazing Shelves: Want to Read Currently Am Read. Ani rated it liked it Mar 21, Great for students starting with no background in the subject matter to build up knowledge in Statistical Mechanics from first principles, as well as students with background in classical Thermodynamics who want to gain a more formalized knowledge as well as insight into phase transitions and macroscopic quantum effects.
A unique feature zn the book is the development of entropy based on Boltzmann’s definition; this avoids contradictions or ad hoc corrections found in other texts. Michele Grosso Torino, Italy.
