Announcing a new textbook: Equilibrium Statistical Physics With Computer Simulations in Python
Aug 01, 2013
The book is offered via print-on-demand.
Equilibrium Statistical Physics is intended primarily as a graduate textbook for students of Physics. Students in other fields such as Biophysics, Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, Complex Systems, or Chemistry may also find much to interest them. It can also serve as a reference for interested students and researchers.
This book is quite different from most texts in the field: the author is persuaded that the best way to learn this subject is to do hands-on computer simulations as part of learning the subject. Accordingly, computer algorithms are integrated in the book as exercises, and computer results in the text. There is a set of programs at the end of the book, and they are also available in machine-readable form at the website, above, along with two sample chapters.
