This course offers an introduction to probability, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics. Numerous examples are used to illustrate a wide variety of physical phenomena such as magnetism, polyatomic gases, thermal radiation, electrons in solids, and noise in electronic ebookcompare.icu course is an elective subject in MIT’s undergraduate Energy Studies Minor. particle physics. The book has originated from the authors' attempts during many years to provide themselves and their students working for a degree in experimen- tal particle physics with practical knowledge of statistical analysis methods and some further insight required for research in this field. Chapter 1 Kinetic approach to statistical physics Thermodynamics deals with the behavior and relation of quantities of macroscopic systems which are in equilibrium.
