‘The book presents a beautiful and detailed introduction to the major ideas behind modern developments in (classical) nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. a very valuable, enjoyable, and useful book to be highly recommended to any student or professional in the field of statistical mechanics at large.’Cited by: The book first covers the classical ensembles of statistical mechanics and stochastic processes, including Brownian motion, probability theory, and the Fokker–Planck and Langevin equations. To illustrate the use of statistical methods beyond the theory of matter, the author discusses entropy in information theory, Brownian motion in the stock.

Statistical physics is a core component of most undergraduate (and some post-graduate) physics degree courses. It is primarily concerned with the behavior of matter in bulk-from boiling water to the superconductivity of metals. Ultimately, it seeks to uncover the laws governing random processes, such as the snow on your TV screen.
