In physics , statistical mechanics is a mathematical framework that applies statistical methods and probability theory to large assemblies of microscopic entities. It does not assume or postulate any natural laws, but explains the macroscopic behavior of nature from the behavior of such ensembles. Statistical mechanics arose out of the development of classical thermodynamics , a field for which it was successful in explaining macroscopic physical properties such as temperature , pressure , heat capacity , in terms of microscopic parameters that fluctuate about average values, characterized by probability distributions. This established the field of statistical thermodynamics and statistical physics. The founding of the field of statistical mechanics is generally credited to Austrian physicist Ludwig Boltzmann , who developed the fundamental interpretation of entropy in terms of a collection of microstates, to Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell , who developed models of probability distribution of such states, and to American Josiah Willard Gibbs , who coined the name of the field in
The Temperature of solid is externally maintained so that heat can flow from high temp to low temp. Thermodynamics and heat power 6th. Measure of Heat. Isothermal and adiabatic processes. The rise in temperature of a substance when work is done is well known.
Building from first principles, it gives a transparent explanation of the physical behaviour of equilibrium thermodynamic systems, and it presents a comprehensive, self-contained account of the modern mathematical and computational techniques of statistical mechanics. Dr Attard is a well-known researcher in statistical mechanics who has made significant contributions to this field. His book offers a fresh perspective on the foundations of statistical thermodynamics. It includes a number of new results and novel derivations, and provides an intriguing alternative to existing monographs. Especially of note are the simple graphs and figures that illustrate the text throughout and the logical organization of the material.
The textbooks that I have consulted most frequently while developing course material are: Fundamentals of Statistical and Thermal Physics: F. Reif (McGraw-Hill.
