Thermodynamics and an Introduction to Thermostatistics

Front Cover
The only text to cover both thermodynamic and statistical mechanics--allowing students to fully master thermodynamics at the macroscopic level. Presents essential ideas on critical phenomena developed over the last decade in simple, qualitative terms. This new edition maintains the simple structure of the first and puts new emphasis on pedagogical considerations. Thermostatistics is incorporated into the text without eclipsing macroscopic thermodynamics, and is integrated into the conceptual framework of physical theory.

LOVED this book. Had I continued in science, I would have wanted this to be a big part of my field (as indeed it was in graduate school). Clear without being simplistic. A valuable reference for the working chemist and engineer. Read full review
