Tolman's Principles of Statistical Mechanics Thread starter A_B; Start date ; #1 A_B. 93 1. Main Question or Discussion Point. Hi, I'm looking for a good book on statistical mechanics (to go with a course) and I've been considereing Tolman's book. This modern textbook provides a complete survey of the broad field of statistical mechanics. Based on a series of lectures, it adopts a special pedagogical approach. The authors, both excellent lecturers, clearly distinguish between general principles and their applications in solving problems. Analogies between phase transitions in fluids and magnets using continuum and spin models are.
