Statistical mechanics of lattice systems. Vol. 1: Closed-form and exact solutions. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 0925.82001
Berlin: Springer. xii, 368 p. (1999).
Publisher’s description: This two-volume work provides a comprehensive study of the statistical mechanics of lattice models. It introduces the reader to the main areas in statistical mechanics and the theory of phase transitions. The development is built on a firm mathematical and physical basis. Volume 1 contains an account of mean-field and cluster variation methods successfully used in many applications in solid-state physics and theoretical chemistry as well as an account of exact results for the Ising and six-vertex models and those derivable by transformation methods.
