Review: Thermal Physics

User Review  - Rafael Díaz hr - Goodreads

It's a good book, specially after rereading it a couple of times. The style is succinct and the arguments elegant (most of the time). Maybe it works better once you know a little bit about stat mech ... Read full review

Review: Thermal Physics

User Review  - Scwoolf - Goodreads

Statistical mechanics is probably the most elegant (and useful) physical theory I have encountered: you basically derive all of thermodynamics from scratch (or with the least objectionable set of ... Read full review

About the author (1969)

Charles Kittel did his undergraduate work in physics at M.I.T and at the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. He worked in the solid state group at Bell Laboratories, along with Bardeen and Shockley, leaving to start the theoretical solid state physics group at Berkeley in 1951. His research has been largely in magnetism and in semiconductors. In magnetism he developed the theories of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic resonance and the theory of single ferromagnetic domains, and extended the Bloch theory of magnons. In semiconductor physics he participated in the first cyclotron and plasma resonance experiments and extended the results to the theory of impurity states and to electron-hole drops.

He has been awarded three Guggenheim fellowships, the Oliver Buckley Prize for Solid State Physics, and, for contributions to teaching, the Oersted Medal of the American Association of Physics Teachers, He is a member of the National Academy of Science and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
