It includes up-to-date examples of applications of the statistical theory, such as Bose-Einstein condensation, population inversions, and white dwarf stars. And, it also includes a chapter on the connection between thermodynamics and information theory. . 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.

It includes up-to-date examples of applications of the statistical theory, such as Bose-Einstein condensation, population inversions, and white dwarf stars. And, it also includes a chapter on the connection between thermodynamics and information theory. Book Edition: This book on mathematical statistics assumes a certain amount of back-ground in mathematics. Followingthe ﬁnal chapter on mathematical statistics Chapter 8, there is Chapter 0 on “statistical mathematics” (that is, mathe-matics with strong relevance to statistical theory) that provides much of the.

Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics An intermediate level course [PDF] This note covers the following topics: Probability theory, Statistical mechanics, Heat and work, Statistical thermodynamics, Classical thermodynamics, Applications of statistical thermodynamics and Quantum statistics. Author(s): Richard Fitzpatrick. Frankly, I don't think the law of large numbers has a huge role in industry. It is helpful to understand the asymptotic justifications of the common procedures, such as maximum likelihood estimates and tests (including the omniimportant GLMs and logistic regression, in particular), the bootstrap, but these are distributional issues rather than probability of hitting a bad sample issues.
