... without needing to evaluate a single integral. Equation (7-5-7) is the so-called "
equipartition theorem" of classical statistical mechanics. In words it states that the
mean value of each inde- pendent quadratic term in the energy is equal to jkT.
A It should be emphasized that the equipartition theorem is valid only in classical
statistical mechanics. In the correct quantum-mechanical description a system
has a set of possible energy levels, as indicated in Fig. 7-5-1, where E0 is the ...
It is not immediately obvious that (15- 17-2) follows immediately from the classical
equipartition theorem.* One can, however, regard the current / as a macroscopic
parameter of the system and consider the free energy F of the circuit as a ...

Never mind that this book was published in the mid '60s (before I was even born); if you must choose one book to learn from, choose this one. It is so concise, so well thought out that I have yet to ... Read full review
