**Statistical Physics**

by Michael Cross

**Publisher**: Caltech 2006**Number of pages**: 263

**Description**:

The author discusses using statistical mechanics to understand real systems, rather than ideal systems that can be solved exactly. In addition dynamics and fluctuations are considered. These notes are an attempt to summarize the main points.
