Statistical Mechanics of Liquids and Solutions: Intermolecular Forces, Structure and Surface Interactions Volume I

1st Edition

Roland Kjellander
September 17, 2019

The statistical mechanical theory of liquids and solutions is a fundamental area of physical sciences with important implications in other fields of science and for many industrial applications. This book introduces equilibrium statistical mechanics in general, and statistical mechanics of liquids...

Statistical Thermodynamics: Understanding the Properties of Macroscopic Systems

1st Edition

Lukong Cornelius Fai, Gary Matthew Wysin
September 05, 2019

Statistical thermodynamics and the related domains of statistical physics and quantum mechanics are very important in many fields of research, including plasmas, rarefied gas dynamics, nuclear systems, lasers, semiconductors, superconductivity, ortho- and para-hydrogen, liquid helium, and so on....

Sturge's Statistical and Thermal Physics, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Jeffrey Olafsen
July 19, 2019

The original work by M.D. Sturge has been updated and expanded to include new chapters covering non-equilibrium and biological systems. This second edition re-organizes the material in a more natural manner into four parts that continues to assume no previous knowledge of thermodynamics. The four...

No-Frills Physics: A Concise Study Guide for Algebra-Based Physics

1st Edition

Matthew D. McCluskey
May 20, 2019

This textbook provides everything you need to get through a basic physics course. It guides students through all the essentials with a concise review of the concept, simple illustrations to demonstrate it, worked problems to showcase how to apply it, and a short quiz for self-testing. Whereas other...

A Different Thermodynamics and its True Heroes

1st Edition

Evgeni B. Starikov
April 01, 2019

Modern thermodynamics is a unique but still not a logically self-consistent field of knowledge. It has a proven universal applicability and significance but its actual potential is still latent. The development of the foundations of thermodynamics was in effect non-stop but absolutely no one has...

Statistical Physics of Dense Plasmas: Elementary Processes and Phase Transitions

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru
December 17, 2018

This authoritative text offers a complete overview on the statistical mechanics and electrodynamics of physical processes in dense plasma systems. The author emphasizes laboratory-based experiments and astrophysical observations of plasma phenomena, elucidated through the fundamentals. The coverage...

Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications

1st Edition

Daniel J. Graham
September 10, 2018

Thermodynamics and information touch theory every facet of chemistry. However, the physical chemistry curriculum digested by students worldwide is still heavily skewed toward heat/work principles established more than a century ago. Rectifying this situation, Chemical Thermodynamics and Information...

Statistical Mechanics for Chemistry and Materials Science

1st Edition

Biman Bagchi
July 17, 2018

This book covers the broad subject of equilibrium statistical mechanics along with many advanced and modern topics such as nucleation, spinodal decomposition, inherent structures of liquids and liquid crystals. Unlike other books on the market, this comprehensive text not only deals with the...

Small Systems and Fundamentals of Thermodynamics

1st Edition

Yu. K. Tovbin
July 10, 2018

Small systems are a very active area of research and development due to improved instrumentation that allows for spatial resolution in the range of sizes from one to 100 nm. In this size range, many physical and chemical properties change, which opens up new approaches to the study of substances...

Annotations to Quantum Statistical Mechanics

1st Edition

In-Gee Kim
March 20, 2018

This book is a rewritten and annotated version of Leo P. Kadanoff and Gordon Baym’s lectures that were presented in the book Quantum Statistical Mechanics: Green’s Function Methods in Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Problems. The lectures were devoted to a discussion on the use of thermodynamic...

Thermodynamics

1st Edition

James Luscombe
March 12, 2018

This book provides an accessible yet thorough introduction to thermodynamics, crafted and class-tested over many years of teaching. Suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, this book delivers clear descriptions of how to think about the mathematics and physics involved. The...

Biomolecular Thermodynamics: From Theory to Application

1st Edition

Douglas Barrick
September 14, 2017

"an impressive text that addresses a glaring gap in the teaching of physical chemistry, being specifically focused on biologically-relevant systems along with a practical focus…. the ample problems and tutorials throughout are much appreciated." –Tobin R. Sosnick, Professor and Chair of...
