Kubo 1965 Statistical Mechanics Pdf




Statistical mechanics is a branch of physics that deals with the statistical behavior of large numbers of particles or systems. It aims to explain the thermodynamic properties and phenomena of matter from the microscopic point of view. Statistical mechanics is based on two fundamental principles: the Boltzmann distribution and the principle of entropy maximization.




Kubo 1965 Statistical Mechanics Pdf



One of the classic textbooks on statistical mechanics is Statistical Mechanics: An Advanced Course with Problems and Solutions by Ryogo Kubo, a Japanese physicist who made significant contributions to the fields of statistical physics, quantum mechanics, and nonlinear dynamics. The book was first published in 1965 by North-Holland Publishing Company, and it was translated from part of the Japanese book Netsugaku, Tokei-Rikigaku (Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics) by Kubo and his collaborators.


The book covers the principles and applications of statistical mechanics in a rigorous and comprehensive manner. It consists of two parts: the first part introduces the basic concepts and methods of statistical mechanics, such as the canonical distribution, the partition function, the thermodynamic potentials, and the fluctuations. The second part discusses various topics and problems in statistical mechanics, such as the statistical thermodynamics of gases, the Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein statistics, the strongly interacting systems, and the kinetic theories. The book also includes many exercises and solutions to help the readers test their understanding and deepen their knowledge.


The book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students who have a solid background in classical and quantum mechanics. It is also a valuable reference for researchers and teachers who are interested in the foundations and applications of statistical mechanics. The book is widely regarded as one of the best books on statistical mechanics, and it has influenced many generations of physicists around the world.


The book is available online for free download from various sources, such as [Internet Archive] or [University Library]. However, readers are advised to respect the intellectual property rights of the author and publisher, and to use the book for educational purposes only.
