this article provides the 2 complementary features of thermal physics as an built-in thought of the houses of topic. Conceptual knowing is promoted via thorough improvement of uncomplicated options. not like many texts, statistical mechanics, together with dialogue of the necessary chance idea, is gifted first. this offers a statistical beginning for the idea that of entropy, that is principal to thermal physics. a special function of the publication is the
development of entropy according to Boltzmann's 1877 definition; this avoids contradictions or advert hoc corrections present in different texts. unique basics offer a common grounding for complicated themes, resembling black-body radiation and quantum gases. an intensive set of difficulties (solutions are
available for teachers in the course of the OUP website), many together with particular computations, boost the center content material through probing crucial options. The textual content is designed for a two-semester undergraduate path yet might be tailored for one-semester classes emphasizing both element of thermal physics. it's also appropriate for graduate study.
