Description:

The series of texts Classical Theoretical Physics is based on thehighly successful series of courses given by Walter Greiner andhis colleagues at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University inFrankfurt am Main, Germany. Intended for advanced undergraduatesand beginning graduate students, the volumes in this series willprovide not only a complete survey of classical theoreticalphysics but also an enormous number of worked examples andproblems to show students clearly how to apply the underlyingprinciples to realistic problems.Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics covers:Thermodynamics- basic definitions of thermodynamics, equilibrium, state variables- the first and second laws- phase transitions and chemical reactions- thermodynamic potentialsStatistical Mechanics- statistics of microscopic states and connection to the entropy- the microcanonical, canonical and grand canonical ensembles- applications of Boltzmann statisticsQuantum Statistics- the density operator- many-particle wave functions- ideal quantum systems- the ideal Bose gas and applications to blackbody radiation, Kirchhoff's law, and lattice vibrations- the ideal Fermi gas and applications to condensed-matter physics, astrophysics, and nuclear physics- relativistic Bose and Fermi gases and applications to particle physicsReal Gases and Phase Transitions- real gases and the virial expansion- classification of phase transitions and critical indices- the Ising and Heisenberg models
