Back cover copy A “Modern Course in Statistical Physics” is a textbook that provides a grounding in the foundations of equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical physics, and focuses on the universal nature of thermodynamic processes.
It illustrates fundamental concepts with examples from contemporary research problems. One focus of the book is fluctuations that occur due lhysics the discrete nature of matter, a topic of growing importance for nanometer scale physics and biophysics. Another focus concerns classical and quantum phase transitions, in both monatomic and mixed particle systems.
The book treats such diverse topics as osmosis, steam engines, superfluids, Bose-Einstein condensates, quantum conductance, light scattering, transport processes, and dissipative structures, all in the framework of the foundations of statistical physics and thermodynamics. All classical physics is derived as oinda cases of quantum statistical physics. This revised and updated third edition gives comprehensive coverage of numerous core topics and special applications, allowing professors flexibility in designing individualized courses.

I will most definitely keep Reichl s Modern Course in close reach, and expect to be frequently consulting this volume, not only when preparing graduate-level courses, but occasionally also for the sake of my group s research activities. Review quote “In summary, I enthusiastically recommend Reichl’s third edition of A Modern Course in Statistical Physics for the advanced student and active researcher E.reich, will most definitely keep Reichl’s Modern Course in close reach, and expect to be frequently consulting this volume, not only when preparing graduate-level courses, but occasionally also for the sake of my group’s research activities.
She received her Ph. Her research ranges over a number of topics in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics. They include the theory of low temperature Fermi liquids, quantum transport theory, application of linear hydrodynamics to translational e.reicjl rotational Brownian motion and dielectric response, the transition to chaos in classical and quantum mechanical conservative systems, and the new field of stochastic chaos theory.
