Download PDF by Terrell L. Hill: An Introduction to Statistical Thermodynamics (Dover Books

By Terrell L. Hill

"A huge variety of workouts of a huge diversity of hassle make this publication much more useful…a solid addition to the literature on thermodynamics on the undergraduate level." — Philosophical Magazine
Although written on an introductory point, this wide-ranging textual content offers vast insurance of themes of present curiosity in equilibrium statistical mechanics. certainly, sure conventional issues are given a little bit condensed remedy to permit room for a survey of more moderen advances.
The booklet is split into 4 significant sections. Part I deals with the rules of quantum statistical mechanics and contains discussions of power degrees, states and eigenfunctions, degeneracy and different subject matters. Part II examines platforms composed of self reliant molecules or of different self sustaining subsystems. themes variety from perfect monatomic fuel and monatomic crystals to polyatomic fuel and configuration of polymer molecules and rubber elasticity. An exam of structures of interacting molecules includes the 9 chapters in Part unwell, reviewing such topics as lattice information, imperfect gases and dilute liquid suggestions. Part IV covers quantum statistics and comprises sections on Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein data, photon gasoline and free-volume theories of quantum liquids.
Each bankruptcy comprises difficulties various in trouble — starting from uncomplicated numerical workouts to small-scale "research" propositions. additionally, supplementary studying lists for every bankruptcy invite scholars to pursue the topic at a extra complicated point. Readers are assumed to have studied thermodynamics, calculus, simple differential equations and user-friendly quantum mechanics.
Because of the flexibleness of the bankruptcy preparations, this booklet specially lends itself to exploit in a one-or two-semester graduate path in chemistry, a one-semester senior or graduate direction in physics or an introductory direction in statistical mechanics.
