Statistical Mechanics: Entropy, Order Parameters and Complexity
by James P. Sethna
Publisher: Oxford University Press 2009
Number of pages: 371
This text is careful to address the interests and background not only of physicists, but of sophisticated students and researchers in mathematics, biology, engineering, computer science, and the social sciences. The text treats the intersection of the interests of all of these groups, while the exercises encompass the union of interests.
