Better book on Statistical Mechanics

  1. Oct 2, 2009 #1
    Hi! I'm a graduate student in solid state physics and I have to follow a graduate course on equilibrium statistical physics, and we're using Plischke and Bergersen's book on "Equilibirum Statistical Physics". Presently, we're seeing Mean Field Theories and Ising model, but somehow, I'm not satisfied with the books, who skips a lot of steps behind each equations. The explanations given doesn't satisfy me either.

    I wonder if you would have recommandations for a better book who covers the same range of subjects, solid state-oriented advanced statistical physics.
