Preamble:
This is a graduate level course in Statistical Mechanics. In this course we will discuss
both the formal aspects and applications of statistical mechanics.
I urge that you look through
several other books listed below and initiate discussion among yourselves on various aspects of this
beautiful subject. Pertinent discussions about the homework sets are acceptable as long as these
discussions are good learning experiences for you, and not merely to come up with a homework
solution. You are always welcome at my office and don’t need to make an appointment.
