It's a CLASSIC!!!
Good reference
Good reference book, but a horrible textbook The entire book is black and white text, with a few mediocre drawings, and a minimal number of worked example problems--some chapters do not have a single example problem.The few example problems that are given are usually solved by skipping most of the critical steps.The authors seem to assume that readers will be doing most of the complex calculations in their heads. What is most annoying, however, is that for many of the book's end-of-chapter problems, the authors have not shown how to solve them anywhere within the chapter.Once again, the authors may have assumed that only geniuses would be reading their text and that they should be able to derive the necessary equations completely unaided by sample problems, illustrations, or other learning aids. In short, I feel sorry for any full-time student who is forced to learn thermodynamics from this textbook. For learning thermodynamics, I think "Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics" by Michael Moran and Howard Shapiro is a much better choice.It has plenty of explanatory graphs and illustrations (in color even), as well as numerous worked examples.Dr. Sonntag and Dr. Van Wylen, are you paying attention? I give this book 2 stars overall.

Editorial Review Product Description Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics covers:Thermodynamics- basic definitions of thermodynamics, equilibrium, state variables- the first and second laws- phase transitions and chemical reactions- thermodynamic potentialsStatistical Mechanics- statistics of microscopic states and connection to the entropy- the microcanonical, canonical and grand canonical ensembles- applications of Boltzmann statisticsQuantum Statistics- the density operator- many-particle wave functions- ideal quantum systems- the ideal Bose gas and applications to blackbody radiation, Kirchhoff's law, and lattice vibrations- the ideal Fermi gas and applications to condensed-matter physics, astrophysics, and nuclear physics- relativistic Bose and Fermi gases and applications to particle physicsReal Gases and Phase Transitions- real gases and the virial expansion- classification of phase transitions and critical indices- the Ising and Heisenberg models FROM THE REVIEWS: AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND PHYSICIST"As one might expect, it contains a thorough and complete coverage of a wide range of topics...It contains a wealth of worked examples: for instance, the theory of relativistic gases is illustrated by its application to one of Greiner's favorite topics, the quark-gluon plasma in the Big Bang and in heavy-ion collisions. It deserves serious consideration as a textbook for third-year courses in this area." Customer Reviews (6)
Ok but...
Great graduate level text
Good standard textbook, many examples, good for beginners to the field
No References and Many Careless Typos Greiner does not include a single reference in this book. I would like to point out that if this were an article submitted to a scientific journal, it would be rejected out of hand for this egregious lack of attribution. This is particularly bothersome with regard to comparing experiment with theory. Mr. Bromley, who wrote the preface, states that these comparisons are a plus for the book. While true, this is hardly unique. Every stat mech book I have quotes experimental results, but the others also cite the reference to the original work. This gives students (and teachers) the ability to look at the experimental work and to get the data for themselves, and it gives credit to those who did the work. What could have been a much better text is marred by too many typos and references to incorrect equation numbers. As well, I find that some "derivations", again contrary to a statement by Bromley, are of the "it can be seen that" variety, which is odd in a text which does go into some detail on many things, e.g. the derivation of the partition function for an ideal gas in the microcanonical ensemble. An example of a non-derivation is given in the discussion that follows eqn 7.67 which arbitrarily splits the velocity distribution into 3 multiplicative pieces. Since the big new thing for a student in this subject is the use of probability, it would have been much more appropriate to find the one-dimensional velocity distribution by integrating the 3d distribution over two of the components. There are other places in the book where the author fails to use this approach. Students find this confusing, I find it inconsistent. As it stands, the formula is correct, but there is not even a hint that it should be derived or questioned. I found the discussion of the purely classical derivation, the semiclassical derivation, and the quantum derivation of various quantities such as the IG partition function to be a bit confusing at times particularly when the Gibbs factor and the quantum correction h^3N were involved, perhaps it is just me. I would find it better if each derivation were given separately with a summary at the end. This would be more helpful, since some of the later derivations, e.g. Maxwell-Boltzmann are essentially classical in nature and could be arrived at from any of the formulas. On the other hand I found Chapter 12 on the Grand Canonical Ensemble to be excellent, especially the discussion of the distribution of occupation numbers on p. 308ff, an important topic that is not often discussed in Stat Mech books. All in all, though, this would be good book with a little more care and with an appropriate reference list. If you get it, pay attention as you read it.

8. Thermodynamics of Materials: A Classical and Statistical Synthesis by John B. Hudson | |

Editorial Review Product Description Designed as a reference resource for practicing professionals as well as a text for advanced students, Thermodynamics of Materials offers a lucid presentation that ties together classical and statistical treatments of thermodynamics within the framework of materials science. Unlike most books in the field, it emphasizes the natural connection between these two approaches, both as a way of obtaining useful information about real systems, and as a way of showing the relations between the molecular-level properties of systems, and their properties on a macroscopic scale. In this regard, the author's aim throughout the text is to introduce the rigorous, general relations that arise from classical thermodynamics, which are system independent, and then to use statistical thermodynamic relations to calculate the expected values of the macroscopic thermodynamic parameters of the systems. Thermodynamics of Materials includes a review of classical thermodynamics, an introduction to statistical thermodynamics, and numerous practical problems in thermodynamics, especially those involving phase and chemical equilibrium. Handy appendices enhance the value of this outstanding text. |

Editorial Review Product Description Presenting both classical models such as the Cubic Equations of State and more advanced models such as the CPA, this book provides the critical starting point for choosing the most appropriate calculation method for accurate process simulations. Written by two of the developers of these models, Thermodynamic Models for Industrial Applications emphasises model selection and model development and includes a useful “which model for which application” guide. It also covers industrial requirements as well as discusses the challenges of thermodynamics in the 21^{st} Century. More information is available online at www.wiley.com/go/kontogeorgis |
