Modern Statistical Mechanics
by Paul Fendley
Publisher: The University of Virginia 2014
Number of pages: 98
This book, Modern Statistical Mechanics, is an attempt to cover the gap between what is taught in a conventional statistical mechanics class (undergraduate or graduate) and between what is necessary to understand current research involving many-body physics. The aim is to introduce some of the basics of many-body physics to a wide audience.

A brief introduction to the relativistic kinetic theory of gases with emphasis on the underlying geometric and Hamiltonian structure of the theory. We start with a discussion on the tangent bundle of a Lorentzian manifold of arbitrary dimension...

Dynamics of Ising models is a much studied phenomenon and has emerged as a rich field of present-day research. An important dynamical feature commonly studied is the quenching phenomenon below the critical temperature ...

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.
