Thermodynamics and an Introduction to Thermostatistics by Herbert B. Callen Thermosta The only text to cover both thermodynamic and statistical mechanics—allowing students to fully master thermodynamics at the macroscopic level.
Thermodynamics and an Introduction to Thermostatistics Herbert B. Government aid to private schools — Australia. Presents essential ideas on critical phenomena developed over the last decade in simple, qualitative terms. I will say this though, stay away from the 1st addition, it is absolutely terrible.

Thermostatistics is incorporated into the text without eclipsing macroscopic thermodynamics, and is integrated into the conceptual framework of physical theory. Related Posts

Jed Zachary and Jessica PREFACE Twenty-five years after writing the first edition of Thermodynamics I am gratified that the book is now the thermodynamic reference most fre quently cited in physics research literature, and that the postulational formulation which it introduced is now widely accepted. Nevertheless several considerations prompt this new edition and extension First, thermodynamics advanced dramatically in the 60s and 70s, pri- marily in the area of critical phenomena. Although those advances are largely beyond the scope of this book, I have attempted to at least describe the nature of the problem and to introduce the critical exponents and scaling functions that characterize the non-analytic behavior of ther- modynamic functions at a second-order phase transition This account is descriptive and simple. It replaces the relatively complicated theory of second-order transitions that, in the view of many students, was the most difficult section of the first edition Second, I have attempted to improve the pedagogical attributes of the book for use in courses from the junior undergraduate to the first year graduate level, for physicists, engineering scientists and chemists.
