Statistical Mechanics, Third Edition

Buy

This classic text, first published in 1972, is designed for graduate physics courses in statistical mechanics. The second edition, published in 1996, incorporated three comprehensive chapters on phase transitions and critical phenomena.

This third edition includes new sections on Bose-Einstein condensation and degenerate Fermi behavior of ultracold atomic gases, and two new chapters on computer simulation methods and the thermodynamics of the early universe. We have also added new sections on chemical and phase equilibrium, and expanded our discussions of correlations and scattering, quantized fields, finite-size effects and the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. We hope this new edition will continue to provide new generations of students with a solid training in the methods of statistical physics.

-Bose-Einstein condensation in atomic gases -Thermodynamics of the early universe -Computer simulations: Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics -Correlation functions and scattering -Fluctuation-dissipation theorem and the dynamical structure factor -Chemical equilibrium -Exact solution of the two-dimensional Ising model for finite systems -Degenerate atomic Fermi gases -Exact solutions of one-dimensional fluid models -Interactions in ultracold Bose and Fermi gases -Brownian motion of anisotropic particles and harmonic oscillators

Algorithmic Game Theory
Algorithmic Game Theory
In the last few years game theory has had a substantial impact on computer science, especially on Internet- and e-commerce-related issues. More than 40 of the top researchers in this field have written chapters that go from the foundations to the state of the art. Basic chapters on algorithmic methods for equilibria, mechanism design and...

Das Projektmanagement-Office: Einführung und Nutzen (German Edition)

In projektorientierten Unternehmen spielen Projektmanagement-Offices (PMO) eine immer wichtigere Rolle, insbesondere dann, wenn die Projektmanagementaktivitäten des Unternehmens zielgerichtet und effizient ausgerichtet werden sollen. PMOs können unterschiedliche Aufgaben, Funktionen und organisatorische Rahmenbedingungen haben. Die...

Special Edition Using Perl 5 for Web Programming
Special Edition Using Perl 5 for Web Programming
Back in 1986, a UNIX programmer by the name of Larry Wall found himself working on a task that involved generating reports from a great many text files, with cross-references. Because he was a UNIX programmer, and because the problem involved manipulating the contents of text files, he started to use awk for the task. But it soon became clear that...

On Top of the Cloud: How CIOs Leverage New Technologies to Drive Change and Build Value Across the Enterprise

Praise for On Top of the Cloud

"21st-century CIOs have a dual responsibility: driving down costs and creating new business value. Managing this seeming dichotomy is the domain of top business executives everywhere, and CIOs everywhere are learning to step it up. The original research contained in Hunter's book...

The Pesticide Detox: Towards a More Sustainable Agriculture
The Pesticide Detox: Towards a More Sustainable Agriculture
This book seeks to address some of these difficulties and set out some new solutions. Pests, diseases and weeds eat, infiltrate and smother crops and grab their nutrients. If farmers stood back and let nature take its course, there would be insufficient food. They must do something. Pesticides are easy to use, although often costly for farmers. In...
