This is an
introductory course on Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics given to final
year undergraduates. They were last updated in May 2012. Full lecture notes come
in around 190 pages. Individual chapters and problem sets can also be found
below. This lecture note covers the following: Fundamentals of Statistical
Mechanics, Classical Gases, Quantum Gases, Classical Thermodynamics, Phase
Transitions. The lecture notes can be downloaded in both PDF and PS formats
In this lecture note, basic principles of Statistical Mechanics
are examined. Topics covered includes: Thermodynamics, probability theory,
kinetic theory, classical statistical mechanics, interacting systems, quantum
statistical mechanics, and identical particles.
