Hello everybody, I am a graduate physics student. I am trying to learn statistical physics and I have extreme difficulty in learning it. I do not find good books and don't get the ideas behind the concepts. the books I consulted where the Greiner, Kittel and Fliessbach. Books used in German universities. Especially I have difficulties in understanding how to derive the microcanonical ensemble. And the concepts behind it. Can anyone help? Telling me about an easy book to start with or lecture notes. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in Advance!!
