Title  Nonequilibrium statistical physics 
Author(s)  Gerd Ropke 
Publication  Verlag, John Wiley and Sons, 2013. 
Description  xiii, 382p. 
Abstract Note  Authored by a wellknown expert in the field of nonequilibrium statistical physics, this book is a coherent presentation of the subject suitable for masters and PhD students, as well as postdocs in physics and related disciplines.
Starting from a general discussion of irreversibility and entropy, the method of nonequilibrium statistical operator is presented as a general concept. Stochastic processes are introduced as a necessary prerequisite to describe the evolution of a nonequilibrium state. Different standard approaches such as master equations, kinetic equations and linear response theory, are derived after special assumptions. This allows for an insight into the problems of nonequilibrium physics, a discussion of the limits of the approaches, and suggestions for improvements. The method of thermodynamic Green's function is outlined that allows for the systematic quantum statistical treatment of manybody systems. Applications and typical examples are given, as well as fully worked problems.

Title  Statistical physics: An Entropic Approach 
Author(s)  Ian Ford 
Publication  Chichester, John Wiley and Sons, 2013. 
Description  xiv, 266p. 
Abstract Note  This undergraduate textbook provides a statistical mechanical foundation to the classical laws of thermodynamics via a comprehensive treatment of the basics of classical thermodynamics, equilibrium statistical mechanics, irreversible thermodynamics, and the statistical mechanics of nonequilibrium phenomena.
This timely book has a unique focus on the concept of entropy, which is studied starting from the wellknown ideal gas law, employing various thermodynamic processes, example systems and interpretations to expose its role in the second law of thermodynamics. This modern treatment of statistical physics includes studies of neutron stars, superconductivity and the recently developed fluctuation theorems. It also presents figures and problems in a clear and concise way, aiding the studentâs understanding.

Title  Student's guide to entropy 
Author(s)  Don S. Lemons 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013. 
Description  xi, 181p. 
Abstract Note  Striving to explore the subject in as simple a manner as possible, this book helps readers understand the elusive concept of entropy. Innovative aspects of the book include the construction of statistical entropy from desired properties, the derivation of the entropy of classical systems from purely classical assumptions, and a statistical thermodynamics approach to the ideal Fermi and ideal Bose gases. Derivations are worked through stepbystep and important applications are highlighted in over 20 worked examples. Around 50 endofchapter exercises test readers' understanding. The book also features a glossary giving definitions for all essential terms, a time line showing important developments, and list of books for further study. It is an ideal supplement to undergraduate courses in physics, engineering, chemistry and mathematics.

Title  Road to Maxwell's demon: Conceptual Foundations of Statistical Mechanics 
Author(s)  Meir Hemmo ;Orly R. Shenker 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012. 
Description  xii, 327p. 
Abstract Note  Time asymmetric phenomena are successfully predicted by statistical mechanics. Yet the foundations of this theory are surprisingly shaky. Its explanation for the ease of mixing milk with coffee is incomplete, and even implies that unmixing them should be just as easy. In this book the authors develop a new conceptual foundation for statistical mechanics that addresses this difficulty. Explaining the notions of macrostates, probability, measurement, memory, and the arrow of time in statistical mechanics, they reach the startling conclusion that Maxwell's Demon, the famous perpetuum mobile, is consistent with the fundamental physical laws. Mathematical treatments are avoided where possible, and instead the authors use novel diagrams to illustrate the text. This is a fascinating book for graduate students and researchers interested in the foundations and philosophy of physics.
