Statistical physics is a branch of physics that uses methods of probability theory and statistics, and particularly the mathematical tools for dealing with large populations and approximations, in solving physical problems. It can describe a wide variety of fields with an inherently stochastic nature. Its applications include many problems in the fields of physics, biology, chemistry. F. Mandl, Statistical Physics, second edition, John Wiley & Sons, I have used this book to teach the course on several occassions. This book emphasizes the statistical approach. I used the first edition of this text as an undergraduate. Philip M. Morse, Thermal Physics, 2nd Ed., Benjamin/Cummings, Reading, Massachusetts,

There are books covering the areas of classical mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, quantum physics, atomic and nuclear physics, astrophysics, and more. The books are stored in various formats for downloading or online reading. Here is a categorized directory of physics books. This list will be updated daily. Manuel G. Velarde and Fransisco Cuadros, editors, Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics, World Scientific (). Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Teaching Modern Physics.

Modern Classical Physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics by Kip S. Thorne, Roger D. Blandford is for first-year & graduate-level text & reference book that covers fundamental concepts classical physics. This book especially explores the six major areas of classical physics that all physics students. Innovative and wide-ranging, this treatment combines precise mathematic style with strong physical intuition. Written by a well-known physicist for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, the text covers negative temperatures and heat capacities, general and special relativistic effects, black hole thermodynamics, gravitational collapse, and many other areas.

Most statistical physics books focus only on statistical mechanics. I think it is important to see the linkage with thermodynamics for a physics student. Also, the book discusses quantum statistical mechanics formally using density matrix.

The motivation and explanation of density matrix are pretty well by: This book covers the following topics: Statistical physics is an unfinished and highly active part of ples of statistical mechanics, Thermodynamic quantities, The Gibbs Distribution, Ideal gas, Statistical ensembles, Fluctuations, Stochastic Processes, Non-Ideal Gases, Phase Equilibrium, Continuous Phase Transitions and Transport phenomena.

Thermodynamics is certainly the most ubiquitous subﬁeld of Physics outside Physics Departments. Engineers, Chemists, and Material Scien-tists do not study relatively or particle physics, but thermodynamics is an integral, and very important, part of their degree courses.
