I am currently enrolled in PHY4523 - Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics where we are currently using "Fundamentals of Statistical and Thermal Physics" by F. Reif and I was wondering if there were any good recommendations as far as supplemental texts that I could use in helping me understand some of the core concepts in Statistical Mechanics? In addition, any textbook that contains a good amount of examples or problems with worked out solutions so that I can follow their reasoning would be greatly appreciated! On a side note, I have never taken probability theory prior to enrolling in PHY4523, thus, I am learning some of the concepts for the very first time. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
