DESCRIPTION:

j.dunning-davies@maths.hull.ac.uk said Lavenda's "Statistical Physics". Whether one likes or dislikes the approach of this book, agrees or disagrees with some of the more controversial results, no-one who has read it can deny that it is a significant book in the field of statistical thermodynamics. Although there are several truly excellent texts on this important subject readily available, this one is refreshingly different,- genuinely making use of established results in mathematical statistics to tackle problems in physics! The method of maximum likelihood and limit theorems such as. Arieh Ben Naim said Highly recommended. This book is highly recommended to any serious student of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.
