Modern Statistical Mechanics
by Paul Fendley
Publisher: The University of Virginia 2014
Number of pages: 98
This book, Modern Statistical Mechanics, is an attempt to cover the gap between what is taught in a conventional statistical mechanics class (undergraduate or graduate) and between what is necessary to understand current research involving many-body physics. The aim is to introduce some of the basics of many-body physics to a wide audience.

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.

The author discusses using statistical mechanics to understand real systems, rather than ideal systems that can be solved exactly. In addition dynamics and fluctuations are considered. These notes are an attempt to summarize the main points.

In this book we describe a new non-perturbative approach to the fermionic many-body problem, which can be considered as a generalization to arbitrary dimensions of the well-known bosonization technique for one-dimensional fermions.

This is a book about statistical mechanics at the advanced undergraduate level. It assumes a background in classical mechanics through the concept of phase space, in quantum mechanics through the Pauli exclusion principle, and multivariate calculus.
