Unlike most other texts on the subject, this clear, concise introduction to the theory of microscopic bodies treats the modern theory of critical phenomena. Provides up-to-date coverage of recent major advances, including a self-contained description of thermodynamics and the classical kinetic theory of gases, interesting applications such as superfluids and the quantum Hall effect, several current research applications, The last three chapters are devoted to the Landau-Wilson approach to critical phenomena. Many new problems and illustrations have been added to this edition.

I just completed a class taught from Huang. It was rocky. If this is your first time through a serious stat mech class, you have difficulty with thermodynamics, or you are the sort of person that learns by doing, then this probably isn't the book for you.

That being said, if you have a strong background in stat mech and thermo, you'll probably find Huang quite enlightening. Huang's approach isn't the most pedagogically sound, but he is more insightful than most. (In the sense of what he presents, not necessarily how he presents it.)

Additionally, while there are errors in the book, there aren't so many that it makes it unreadable -- the book is hard to read based on its own construction.

I managed to do well in the course, but it was by constantly referencing other books. If this is your first time through, I recommend reading the material of the current chapter in another book first, running a couple of example problems from that book, and then reading through Huang. It seemed to work better as a reference into usually uncovered topics than as a textbook. The first few chapters on thermodynamics and (non-quantum) statistical mechanics are probably best learned from another source.

Huang has a very consistent style of presentation. I love it.

no problem EXCELLENT book

Great!

In my 18 years of formal education, this is the worst textbook I have ever used in any subject. His writing style is awful, the book is littered with typos, his notation is completely different from any I've ever seen, and attempting the homework problems is similar to trying to write an essay in Korean with only a travel guidebook as a reference. Even the paper and cover is of substandard quality. If you are an instructor and are reading this, for the love of god, DON'T USE THIS FOR YOUR COURSE.

I learned statistical mechanics from `Statistical Mechanics' by K. Huang and `Statistical Mechanics' by S.K. Ma. In my opinion, most books on the elementray principles, including the book by K. Huang, are too complicated for beginners. The best treatments as far as I know are given by `Statistical Physics, part I' by Landau and Lifshize and the one by S.K. Ma. Another weak points in Huang's book are the discussions about ideal quantum gases. It presents formal mathematical methods to study this problem. I think that this approach is also too complicated for beginners and sometimes bury the relevant physical ideas. In this part, the best treatment for the ideal Bose gas is given by `Statistical mechanics' by T.D. Lee (in Chinese), and for the ideal Fermi gas given by S.K. Ma.

For these parts, I should give 3 stars. However, the strong parts of Huang's book is the chapters on the advanced topics. The writting is compact and clear. They can be served as a good introduction to the modern theory of critical phenomena and superfluidity. Further, they are useful references for research. In addition, the formal manipulation for quantum ideal gases is necessary for research though it seems a little bit complicated for students. For all these, I gave 4 stars to this book.

Finally, I should say that the approach of Huang's book is not based on the kinetic theory though it spends a few chapters on this aspect. The reason why the kinetic theory is put before the chapters on SM, in my opinion, is to emphasize the important role played by collisions between particles to establish thermal equilibrium and the validity of the basic assumption of SM, as indicated by S.K. Ma in his book. I think previous reviews about this are misleading.

this is a standard book on statistical mechanics. Admittedly, this is not an easy book, but if you
are seriously about leaning statistical mechanics, then this is a serious book for you.

Huang approaches the subject as a series of proofs: he does not make physical arguments, and his writing is wooden. Instructors--avoid this book!
Some have said that this book approaches stat mech from the refreshing view of kinetic theory. But it leaves out the Fokker-Planck and Langevin approaches, by which the Boltzmann equation is usually solved. Anyone interested in this approach would be *far* more rewarded by Landau's Physical Kinetics.
Anyone interested in Gibbs theory should consult Landau or Sommerfeld.
Anyone who wants good problems (and real applications) would be better served by the canonical McQuarrie.
Anyone who wants a feel for what the subject *actually now is* should see Kadanoff or Chandler. Actually I think allowing students to leave stat mech without seeing the monte carlo algorithm or solving a stochastic equation is a crime.
