Thermal and Statistical Physics
by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik
Publisher: Princeton University Press 2010
Number of pages: 475
This text is about two closely related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book is part of an effort to bring some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.

The classic by the Nobel Laureate is still recognized as one of the best introductions to thermodynamics. A model of conciseness and clarity, it covers fundamental facts and definitions, first and second fundamental principles of thermodynamics, etc.
by Elliott H. Lieb, Jakob Yngvason - arXiv
The essential postulates of classical thermodynamics are formulated, from which the second law is deduced as the principle of increase of entropy in irreversible adiabatic processes that take one equilibrium state to another.
by Ricardo Morales-Rodriguez (ed.) - InTech
The book goes from the fundamentals up to several applications in different scientific fields: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products, Non Equilibrium Thermodynamics, etc.
by Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson
Computational foundation of thermodynamics based on deterministic finite precision computation without resort to statistics. A new 2nd Law without the concept of entropy is proved to be a consequence of the 1st Law and finite precision computation.
