Bringing together two key topics in undergraduate physics into one textbook, Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics presents the fundamentals of thermal physics with selected real-world applications. Featuring a level of mathematical description of thermodynamics, this focused textbook provides physics undergraduates with the details of Newtonian mechanics, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and statistical mechanics, all of which are axiomatic theories based on small numbers of assertions and postulates relating to the behavior of our physical environment.
