- An understanding of thermal physics is crucial
to much of modern physics, chemistry and engineering. This book
provides a modern introduction to the main principles that are
foundational to thermal physics, thermodynamics and statistical
mechanics. The key concepts are carefully presented in a clear way,
and new ideas are illustrated with copious worked examples as well as
a description of the historical background to their discovery.
Applications are presented to subjects as diverse as stellar
astrophysics, information and communication theory, condesed matter
physics and climate change. Each chapter concludes with detailed
