An Introduction to Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics - UNITEXT for Physics (Hardback)Piero Olla (author)

Further features include a focus on the interdisciplinary nature of the subject and in-depth discussion of alternative interpretations of the concept of entropy. While some familiarity with basic concepts of thermodynamics and probability theory is assumed, this does not extend beyond what is commonly obtained in basic undergraduate curriculum courses.

From the book reviews:"This is an elementary (but very interesting) basic introduction to the road from microscopic physics to macroscopic physics via statistical physics. ... It begins with a review of the essential prerequisite of probability and statistics. And the main topics which are dealt with are successively kinetic theory, thermodynamics, equilibrium statistical mechanics and the theory of fluctuations. A nice book for undergraduate courses." (Guy Jumarie, zbMATH, Vol. 1302, 2015)
