This textbook deals a sophisticated undergraduate or preliminary graduate point advent to themes equivalent to kinetic concept, equilibrium statistical mechanics and the speculation of fluctuations from a contemporary standpoint. the purpose is to supply the reader with the mandatory instruments of chance idea and thermodynamics (especially the thermodynamic potentials) to allow next examine at complex graduate point. while, the ebook bargains a bird's eye view on arguments which are frequently skipped over generally curriculum courses. 

Further positive aspects contain a spotlight at the interdisciplinary nature of the topic and in-depth dialogue of different interpretations of the idea that of entropy. whereas a few familiarity with uncomplicated innovations of thermodynamics and chance thought is thought, this doesn't expand past what's often got in uncomplicated undergraduate curriculum courses.
