Title:Equilibrium Statistical Physics [electronic resource] : Phases of Matter and Phase Transitions
Author(s): Marc Baus
Carlos F Tejero
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is a textbook which gradually introduces the student to the statistical mechanical study of the different phases of matter and to the phase transitions between them. Throughout, only simple models of both ordinary and softmatter are used but the se are studied in full detail. The subject is developed in a pedagogical manner, starting from the basics, going from the simple ideal systems to the interacting systems, and ending with the more modern topics.The latter include the renormalisation group approach to critical phenomena, the density functional theory of interfaces, the topological defects of nematic liquid crystals and the kinematic aspects of the phase transformation process.This textbook provides the student with a complete overview, inte ntionally at an introductory level, of the theory of phase transitions. References include suggestions for more detailed treatments and four appendices supply overviewsof the mathematical tools employed in the text
