Statistical and Thermal Physics Fundamentals and Applications
by Michael D. Sturge

Publisher's page

From Book News, Inc. Introducing principles and applications of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, Sturge (Dartmouth College) covers concepts including temperature, heat, entropy, free energy, chemical potential, and distributions. The concepts are later applied to a wide variety of problems, including perfect gasses, electrons in metals, and heat engines. The book should be accessible to physics students who understand what is meant by a quantum state" the use of partial derivatives, and who have familiarity with series expansion in a small parameter. An appendix gives a brief review of what students need to know on these topics
