Lecture Notes in Statistical Mechanics
by Igor Vilfan
Publisher: The J. Stefan Institute 2002
Number of pages: 137
These lectures cover classical and quantum statistical mechanics with some emphasis on classical spin systems. The author gives also an introduction to Bose condensation and superfluidity but he does not discuss phenomena specific to Fermi particles.
