Here is the listing of Best reference books on Advanced Thermodynamics.
|1. “Statistical Mechanics” by McQuarrie D.A
Book Review: This book gives a very nice introduction to statistical mechanics. The book contains numerous problems at the end of every chapter thereby helping the students to understand the concepts effectively. The book contains simple numerical exercises as well as research propositions. The book requires the readers to have prior understanding of thermodynamics, calculus, differential equations and quantum mechanics. This book is suitable for graduate courses in chemistry as well as introductory courses in statistical mechanics.
|2. “An Introduction to Statistical Thermodynamics” by Hill Terrel
Book Review: This book covers all the topics related to equilibrium statistical mechanics. The book is divided into four parts and the first part contains principles of quantum statistical mechanics and also discusses about energy levels, degeneracy and other topics. Second part examines systems that are made up of independent subsystems. Third part covers topics like lattice statistics, imperfect gases and dilutes liquid solutions. The last part of the book covers quantum statistics and theories on quantum liquids.
|3. “Thermodynamics and an Introduction to Thermostatics” by
Book Review: This book covers concepts related to both thermodynamics and statistical mechanics thereby allowing students to understand thermodynamics completely. The book also presents ideas that are based on critical phenomena. The book also stresses on the pedagogical considerations. The book also provides integration of conceptual framework of physical theory and macroscopic thermodynamics. All the concepts are explained in simple terms.
|4. “Molecular Thermodynamics of Fluid-phase Equilibria” by Prausnitz J.M., Lichtenthaler R.M. and Azevedo E.G
Book Review: This book is updated with models, theories, examples and data pertaining to molecular thermodynamics. The book carries out interpretation, correlation and prediction of thermodynamic properties used in phase equilibrium calculations. The book also describes the techniques in applied statistical thermodynamics and molecular simulation thereby also stressing on classical thermodynamics, molecular physics and physical chemistry. The book also describes polymer solutions and electrolyte solutions that contain salts and volatile electrolytes.
