Title  Statistical mechanics and applications in condensed matter 
Author(s)  Carlo Di Castro;Roberto Raimondi 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2015. 
Description  xv, 531p. 
Abstract Note  his innovative and modular textbook combines classical topics in thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and manybody theory with the latest developments in condensed matter physics research. Written by internationally renowned experts and logically structured to cater for undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers, it covers the underlying theoretical principles and includes numerous problems and worked examples to put this knowledge into practice. Three main streams provide a framework for the book; beginning with thermodynamics and classical statistical mechanics, including mean field approximation, fluctuations and the renormalization group approach to critical phenomena. The authors then examine quantum statistical mechanics, covering key topics such as normal Fermi and Luttinger liquids, superfluidity and superconductivity. Finally, they explore classical and quantum kinetics, Anderson localization and quantum interference, and disordered Fermi liquids. Unique in providing a bridge between thermodynamics and advanced topics in condensed matter, this textbook is an invaluable resource to all students of physics.

Title  Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of macromolecular systems 
Author(s)  Michael Bachmann 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014. 
Description  xv, 342p. 
Abstract Note  The structural mechanics of proteins that fold into functional shapes, polymers that aggregate and form clusters, and organic macromolecules that bind to inorganic matter can only be understood through statistical physics and thermodynamics. This book reviews the statistical mechanics concepts and tools necessary for the study of structure formation processes in macromolecular systems that are essentially influenced by finitesize and surface effects. Readers are introduced to molecular modeling approaches, advanced Monte Carlo simulation techniques, and systematic statistical analyses of numerical data. Applications to folding, aggregation, and substrate adsorption processes of polymers and proteins are discussed in great detail. Particular emphasis is placed on the reduction of complexity by coarsegrained modeling, which allows for the efficient, systematic investigation of structural phases and transitions. Providing insight into modern research at this interface between physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology, this book is an excellent reference for graduate students and researchers.

Title  Principles of physics: From Quantum Field Theory to Classical Mechanics 
Author(s)  Ni Jun 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2014. 
Description  xvi, 426p. 
Series  (Tsinghua Report and Review in Physics) 
Abstract Note  This book starts from a set of common basic principles to establish the formalisms in all areas of fundamental physics, including quantum field theory, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, general relativity, electromagnetic field, and classical mechanics. Instead of the traditional pedagogic way, the author arranges the subjects and formalisms in a logicalsequential way, i.e. all the formulas are derived from the formulas before them. The formalisms are also kept selfcontained. Most of the required mathematical tools are also given in the appendices.
Although this book covers all the disciplines of fundamental physics, the book is concise and can be treated as an integrated entity. This is consistent with the aphorism that simplicity is beauty, unification is beauty, and thus physics is beauty. The book may be used as an advanced textbook by graduate students. It is also suitable for physicists who wish to have an overview of fundamental physics.

Title  Computational statistical physics: Lecture notes, guwahati SERC school 
Author(s)  Sitangshu Bikas Santra (Ed.);Purusattam Ray (Ed.) 
Publication  New Delhi, Hindustan Book Agency, 2011. 
Description  xiv, 283p. 
Series  (Texts and Readings in Physical Sciences) 
Abstract Note  The present book is an outcome of the SERC school on Computational Statistical Physics held at the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, in December 2008.
Numerical experimentation has played an extremely important role in statistical physics in recent years. Lectures given at the School covered a large number of topics of current and continuing interest.
Based on lectures by active researchers in the field Bikas Chakrabarti, S Chaplot, Deepak Dhar, Sanjay Kumar, Prabal Maiti, Sanjay Puri, Purusattam Ray, Sitangshu Santra and Subir Sarkar the nine chapters comprising the book deal with topics that range from the fundamentals of the field, to problems and questions that are at the very forefront of current research.
This book aims to expose the graduate student to the basic as well as advanced techniques in computational statistical physics. Following a general introduction to statistical mechanics and critical phenomena, the various chapters cover Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulation methodology, along with a variety of applications. These include the study of coarsening phenomena and diffusion in zeolites.
In addition, graphical enumeration techniques are covered in detail with applications to percolation and polymer physics, and methods for optimization are also discussed. Beginning graduate students and young researchers in the area of statistical physics will find the book useful. In addition, this will also be a valuable general reference for students and researchers in other areas of science and engineering.
