Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I particularly like the wealth of interesting mehran.stagistical instructive problems inspired by diverse phenomena throughout physics and beyond!
I cannot endorse this book highly enough, and expect it’ll become sort of the ‘jackson’ of stat mech 2. This book is something pages. Table Of Content 1.
It’s mehran.statistocal written and the problems at the end of the chapters make you think and sometimes google how to solve them. Of course that’s all good for a graduate level text, but with such lack of details and such, it was rather hard to follow. However, it is very mathematical while managing to not be very thorough.
Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: He also provides careful discussion of topics that do appear in most modern texts on theoretical statistical physics, such as scaling and renormalization group. Would you like mehran.statisticla tell us about a lower price?

Kevin rated it it was ok Oct 04, Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.
User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excellent grad level book. The derivations follow a bit of the Landau Lifshitz style, being very systematic and rigorous at the same time, mehran.statisticxl very economical on word count.

About this product Synopsis Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics.
Ideally, for a first course, I prefer a systematic approach, menran.statistical the intuitive stuff only when it’s justified. Statistical Physics of Fields is the welcome result of an innovative and popular graduate course Kardar has been teaching at MIT for almost twenty years. A complete set of solutions is available to lecturers on a password protected website at www. Kevin Montes rated particlees really liked it Jan 05, Read more Read less.
Written by a leader in the field, it provides a crystal clear, elegant and comprehensive coverage of the field of statistical physics. See all Mehran.statkstical Reviews.
It’s also very concise, I would say if you like the Landau series, you’ll like this. In the tradition of Landau’s excellent mechanics textbook, Kardar is a master of statistical physics who starts with only basic assumptions about the nature of the physical laws in each chapter, and derives wonderful results elucidating the nature of statistical physics. Based on lectures for a statistical mechanics course, this textbook introduces the central concepts and tools of statistical physics including solutions that are available to lecturers at www.
