During this transparent and concise advent to thermodynamics and statistical mechanics the reader, who can have a few prior publicity to thermodynamics, may be guided via all of the disciplines individually before everything to supply an in-depth realizing of the world and thereafter the relationship among the 2 is gifted and discussed.

furthermore, mathematical ideas are brought at acceptable instances, highlighting such use as: specified and inexact differentials, partial derivatives, Caratheodory's theorem, Legendre transformation, and combinatory analysis.

* Emphasis is positioned both on basics and applications

* numerous difficulties are incorporated
