Abstract NoteDrawing on both quantum mechanics and classical physics, this first volume of a two-volume work follows modern research in statistical physics. It discusses in detail the probabilistic description of quantum or classical systems, the Boltzmann-Gibbs distributions, the conservation laws, and the interpretation of entropy as missing information
Contents NoteIntroduction -- Paramagnetism of Ionic Solids -- Probabilistic Description of Systems -- Information Theory and Statistical Entropy -- The Boltzmann-Gibbs Distribution -- Thermodynamics Revisited -- On the Proper Use of Equilibrium Thermodynamics -- The Perfect Gas -- Molecular Properties of Gases -- Condensation of Gases and Phase Transitions -- Subject Index -- Units and Physical Constants -- A Few Useful Formulae
