From Microphysics to Macrophysics. Vol.2

Theoretical and Mathematical Physics
Methods and Applications of Statistical Physics
This popular, often cited text returns in a softcover edition to provide a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics, and to exhibit the universal chain of ideas leading from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour of matter.
Quantum Gases Without Interactions.- Elements of Solid State Theory.- Liquid Helium.- Equilibrium and Transport of Radiation.- Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics.- Kinetic Equations.- Problems.
This text not only provides a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics but also exhibits the universality of the chain of ideas that leads from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour of matter. A wide range of applications teaches students how to make use of the concepts, and many exercises will help to deepen their understanding. Drawing on both quantum mechanics and classical physics, the book follows modern research in statistical physics.Volume II applies statistical methods to systems governed by quantum effects, in particular to solid state physics, explaining properties due to the crystal structure or to the lattice excitations or to the electrons. Liquid helium is discussed and radiative equilibrium and transport are studied. The last chapters are devoted to non-equilibrium processes and to kinetic equations, with many applications included.
This softcover edition accommodates the many requests to make this widely used and often cited classical text available again.
