Statistical physics is a core component of physics degree courses. It is primarily concerned with the behavior of matter in bulk-from boiling water to the superconductivity of metals. This new textbook guides the reader quickly through a statistical view of the physical world, including a wide range of physical applications to illustrate the methodology. It moves from basic examples to more advanced topics, such as broken symmetry and the Bose-Einstein equation. To accompany the text, the author, a renowned author, has written a Solutions Manual/Instructor's Guide, available free of charge to lecturers who adopt Introduction to Statistical Physics for their courses.
