If you have the level in maths, and are interested in the mathematical theory of phase transitions for lattice systems, the classical reference is Georgii's "Gibbs measures and phase transitions" (although that's.

The connection between statistical mechanics on the one side and quantum mechanics and quantum field theory on the other side is based on the analogy between thermal and quantum fluctuations. Formally, the connection is expressed through the mathematical equivalence between the partition function in statistical mechanics and the propagator in quantum field theory.

They include a solution of the original interacting quantum field equations and a description of the physics which these equations contain. 'This is an excellent book from which to learn the methods and results of statistical mechanics.' Nature 'A well written graduate-level text for scientists and engineers Highly recommended for graduate-level libraries.' Choice This highly successful text, which first appeared in the year and has continued to be popular ever since, has now been brought up-to-date by incorporating the /5(2).

Statistical mechanics, branch of physics that combines the principles and procedures of statistics with the laws of both classical and quantum mechanics, particularly with respect to the field of aims to predict and explain the measurable properties of macroscopic systems on the basis of the properties and behaviour of the microscopic constituents of those systems.

The essential resource on the subject, this book is the most. $\begingroup$ To understand statistical mechanics at the level of the book by Reichl, say you don't need any QFT.

Some conformal field theory is needed only if you want to rigorously study critical scaling in 2D theories.

Of course, for a deep understanding, one needs both. $\endgroup$ –. Undergrad Level: An Introduction to Thermal Physics (Schroeder) is the one that seems to be recommended more than any other book. It's very user-friendly and informal (probably the most user-friendly stat mech textbook on the market).

Finally, in Statistical Physics of Fields Kardar makes his fantastic course available to the physics community as a whole. The book provides an intuitive yet rigorous introduction to field-theoretic and related methods in statistical physics.

The treatment of. ship between statistical physics and information theory as pioneered by Claude Shan-non. Although somehow debated, this link shows once again that statistical physics is more than statistical mechanics. Information theory provides very helpful insight into the concept of entropy, which is the cornerstone of statistical mechanics.

Recently this. About The Book: This text offers a balanced treatment of quantum field theory, providing both formal presentation and numerous begins with the standard quantization of electrodynamics, culminating in the perturbative renormalization, and proceeds to functional methods, relativistic bound states, broken symmetries, nonabelian gauge fields, and asymptotic behavior.
