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  Nonequilibrium statistical physics 
Author(s)  Gerd Ropke 
Publication  Weinheim, WileyVCH, 2013. 
Description  xiii, 382p. 
Abstract Note  Authored by one of the top theoretical physicists in Germany, and a wellknown authority in the field, this is the only 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 the nonequilibrium state, different standard approaches such as master equations, and kinetic 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, and suggestions for improvements. Applications and typical examples are given, as well as fully worked problems (simple to advanced).

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.

Title  Kinetic view of statistical physics 
Author(s)  Pavel L. Krapivsky;Sidney Redner;Eli BenNaim 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2010. 
Description  xv, 488p. 
Abstract Note  book explores some of the core phenomena in nonequilibrium statistical physics. It focuses on the development and application of theoretical methods to help students develop their problemsolving skills. The book begins with microscopic transport processes: diffusion, collisiondriven phenomena, and exclusion. It then presents the kinetics of aggregation, fragmentation and adsorption, where the basic phenomenology and solution techniques are emphasized. The following chapters cover kinetic spin systems, both from a discrete and a continuum perspective, the role of disorder in nonequilibrium processes, hysteresis from the nonequilibrium perspective, the kinetics of chemical reactions, and the properties of complex networks.
