Leading physical chemist David Chandler takes a new approach to statistical mechanics to provide the only introductory-level work that covers the modern topics which have revolutionized the field: renormalization group theory, Monte Carlo simulations, time correlation functions, and liquid structure. He provides summaries of the fundamentals along with discussions of many traditional applications of statistical mechanics, interspersed with over 150 exercises and microcomputer programs. The work will be of interest to students in elementary statistical mechanics and thermodynamics, thermal and statistical physics, and statistical thermodynamics in departments of chemistry, chemical engineering, and physics.
