Much of the subject matter is inspired by problems in condensed matter physics, with a number of pioneering contributions originally due to Kardar himself.
Be the first to write a review. Statistical physics has its origins in attempts to describe the thermal properties of matter in terms of its constituent particles, and has played a fundamental role in the development of quantum mechanics.

However, I feel really ripped off as to the price and length.
Ajeet Mishra rated it really liked it Jul 01, User Review – Flag as inappropriate Excellent grad level book. I used both this text and Pathria for a graduate level class in statistical mechanics.
Based on lectures for a course in statistical mechanics taught by Professor Kardar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, this textbook introduces the central concepts and tools of statistical physics. It is a masterful account of the essentials of a subject which played a vital role in the development of twentieth century physics Reviews “Over the past two phhysics, I have admired Kardar’s contributions to theoretical physics, and now I admire his contribution to teaching physics.
Statistical Physics of Fields builds on the foundation laid by the Statistical Physics of Particles, with an account of the revolutionary developments of the past 35 years, many of which were facilitated by renormalization group ideas.

This book is something pages. With that volume Kardar has produced an excellent and unique textbook that physica serve our community well for many years. Alex rated it it was amazing Mar 02, Long rated it liked it Mar 21, Vasudha Pande rated it liked it Aug 15, Hadi rated it really liked it Mar 14, Unlike Landau’s excellent statistical physics book, very little assumed knowledge is required to follow this textbook; obviously, skill in elementary algebra, calculus, differential equations, and a bit of Hamiltonian mechanics and a few very basic results of mehran.stztistical mechanics are prerequisites.
