Themal Physics Kittel vs Schwabl

  1. Aug 13, 2012 #1
    I have the option of taking one of two thermal physics/statistical mechanics courses this semester. One uses Kittel's Thermal Physics, and one Schwabl's Statistical Mechanics. Do you guys have any recommendations; which one is more advanced, clearer, etc? My background is Schroeder's Thermal Physics. Thanks in advance.

    99.5% that the course which uses Schwabl is the more advanced course of the two you've mentioned.
