Statistical Field Theory
by H.T.C. Stoof
Publisher: Utrecht University 2002
Number of pages: 66
We give a self-contained introduction to the quantum field theory for many-particle systems, using functional methods throughout. We focus in general on the behavior of so-called quantum liquids, i.e., quantum gases and liquids, but use as an explicit example always the trapped atomic gases that have recently become accesible experimentally.

This is a book about statistical mechanics at the advanced undergraduate level. It assumes a background in classical mechanics through the concept of phase space, in quantum mechanics through the Pauli exclusion principle, and multivariate calculus.

Set of lecture notes for an upper-division thermodynamics and statistical mechanics course. Covered topics are classical thermodynamics, the thermodynamics of the atmosphere, heat engines, specific heat capacities of gases and solids, etc.
by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik - Princeton University Press
A text on two related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book brings some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.

A new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics is explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations.
