By J. E. Mayer

This e-book includes 8 chapters, and starts with a presentation of the grasp equation used for the calculation of the elemental thermodynamic capabilities. The succeeding chapters spotlight the features of the partition functionality and its program to the research of ideal and imperfect gases, solids, and dense fluids. those themes are via discussions at the basics of quantum data, with specific emphasis on its program in convinced media. The final bankruptcy outlines the derivation of the relatives among the partition capabilities and the thermodynamic amounts.

This ebook should be of price to actual chemists, chemical physicists, mathematicians, and researchers within the allied fields of statistical mechanics.
