An Introduction to Applied Statistical Thermodynamics

An Introduction to Applied Statistical Thermodynamics

Written for undergraduate and graduate students, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to statistical thermodynamics. The book presents the simplest forms of Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulation (for simple spherical molecules) and provides MATLAB programs for doing such simulations. Topics include probabilistic description, the Gibbs entropy equation, chemical reactions in ideal gases, and the microcanonical ensemble.

MATLAB is introduced and used to solve examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
