An Introduction to Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics by Robert H. Swendsen
A unique feature of the book is the development of entropy based on Boltzmann’s definition; this avoids contradictions or ad hoc corrections found in other texts. It explains concepts from a ground-up approach, starting with probability theory and Boltzmann’s introductikn definition of the entropy, and doesn’t skimp on either clarity of explanation or depth.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. The text is designed for a two-semester undergraduate course but can be adapted for one-semester courses emphasizing either aspect of thermal physics.

In contrast to many texts, statistical mechanics, including discussion of the required probability theory, is presented first. Ani rated it liked it Mar 21, The book is currently used in Carnegie Mellon University’s undergraduate and graduate classes, and is a first-rate introduction to advanced graduate works like Kardar or Landau.

This, conversely, is written quite pedagogically a big plus for meby someone with a deep and tbermodynamics insightful thermoodynamics of statistical mechanics.
