Summary Physics, rather than mathematics, is the focus in this classic graduate lecture note volume on statistical mechanics and the physics of condensed matter. This book provides a concise introduction to basic concepts and a clear presentation of difficult topics, while challenging the student to reflect upon as yet unanswered questions.
Contents Introduction to statistical mechanics -- Density matrices -- Path integrals -- Classical system of N particles -- Order-disorder theory -- Creation and annihilation operators -- Spin waves -- Polaron problem -- Electron gas in a metal -- Superconductivity -- Superfluidity.
