I've recently gotten interested in statistical physics. Notions derived from this area are frequently applied in learning theory and other areas of biology which are of interest to me. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good book or web resource for learning about statistical physics that would be appropriate for someone with my background. I have almost no physics background at all. The only physics class that I ever took was a high school AP physics -mechanics class years ago. My undergraduate degree was in mathematics and recently I've been putting a lot of time into studying stochastic dynamics (Ito calculus, stochastic PDEs etc). Does anyone know of a book on statistical physics that I could learn from? I tend to have trouble reading physics books due to the extensive use of physics jargon with which I am unfamiliar.
