A companion volume, Statistical Physics of Fields, discusses non-mean field aspects of scaling and critical phenomena, through the perspective of renormalization group. It will be invaluable for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in statistical physics.
Contents Preface page ix. Of course that’s all good for a graduate level text, but with such lack of details and such, mehran.sstatistical was rather hard to follow I recall using this book in my fourth year of my undergraduate program for a graduate statistical physics course.

Unlike Landau’s excellent statistical physics book, very little assumed knowledge is required to follow this textbook; obviously, skill in elementary algebra, calculus, differential equations, and a bit of Hamiltonian mechanics and a few very basic results of quantum mechanics are prerequisites.
This book is so beautiful. Matt Adams rated it did not like it Feb 26, Be the first to ask a question about Statistical Physics of Particles.
It contains a chapter on probabilit Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics. I used it to study mainly quantum statistical mechanics portion. Be the first to write a review. I watched each lecture which were excellent, by the way and found the book rather useful.

Statistical Physics of Particles by Mehran Kardar (2007, Hardcover)
Love Grover rated it it was amazing Oct 10, See details for additional description. The writer was great too and responded when I asked him questions. It contains a chapter on probability and related issues such as the central limit theorem and information theory, and covers interacting particles, with an extensive description of the van der Waals equation and its derivation by mean field approximation.
I think it’s one of the clearest exposition Long rated it liked it Mar 21, Kevin Nuckolls rated it liked it Jun 18, This is a great book for my graduate level Stat.
Eduardo rated it really liked it Mar 09, I really like this. Statistical Physics of Fields. However, I feel really ripped off as to the price and length. And the author released another page book along side it.

In the tradition of Landau’s excellent mechanics textbook, Kardar is a master of statistical physics who starts with only basic assumptions about the nature of the physical laws in each chapter, and derives wonderful results elucidating the nature of statistical physics.
Ok, this book will make you work for everything, no free stuff here.
