Summary
  • "'Statistical thermodynamics' gives a concise and accessible account of this fundamental topic by emphasizing the underlying physical chemistry at the atomic and molecular level, while introducing the mathematical concepts in an approachable way. The material is presented in short, self-contained sections, making it flexible both for learning and for teaching. The separate sections are finally brought together by a series of detailed applications to real systems. Throughout the text, frequent diagrams and marginal notes are provided to support learning. End-of-chapter problems are included to encourage active participation and thus promote deeper understanding
  • New to this edition: an online resource centre with interactive questions for students and downloadable figures for instructors; new end-of-chapter summaries help you understand the key 'take home' points for each topic; new numerical problems at the end of the book enable you to practice using the material covered in the primer to solve novel problems; [and] an appendix covering additional mathematics, for those who wish to extend their understanding in a more formal and detailed manner." -- rear cover
