This book provides a gentle introduction to equilibrium statistical mechanics. The particular aim is to fill the needs of readers who wish to learn the subject without a solid background in classical and quantum mechanics. The approach is unique in that classical mechanical formulation takes center stage. The book will be of particular interest to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in engineering departments.
Isamu Kusaka is an associate professor in the William G. Lowrie Department of Chemical and Bio molecular Engineering at the Ohio State University. His current research interests include transport phenomena in nano scale systems.
