Landau and Lifshitz, Statistical Physics Russian style: terse, encyclopedic, magni cent. Much of this book comes across as remarkably modern given that it was rst published in Mandl, Statistical Physics This is an easy going book with very clear explanations but doesn’t go into as much detail as we will need for this course.

For a good self study guide, I would suggest Blundell and Blundell's "Concepts in Thermal Physics" it builds up the thermodynamics part for a good 1/3 of the book but then the rest is statistical mech, has several applications of both, many practical and it includes several discussions in advanced topics, my favorite was the derivation of.

The book by Callen also draws heavily on the work by Edwin Jaynes on the relation-ship between statistical physics and information theory as pioneered by Claude Shan-non. Although somehow debated, this link shows once again that statistical physics is more than statistical mechanics. Information theory provides very helpful insight into.
