These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.
by Josiah Willard Gibbs - Charles Scribner's Sons
Written by J. Willard Gibbs, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles.

A brief introduction to the technique of Monte Carlo simulations in statistical physics. The topics covered include statistical ensembles random and pseudo random numbers, random sampling techniques, importance sampling, Markov chain, etc.
by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik - Princeton University Press
A text on two related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book brings some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.
