Stratos Manousakis's lectures on statistical mechanics have become almost legendary in the years that he has taught the course at Florida State University. There are many books on this topic, and there will be many more; but the author's focus on new topics, and his remarkable talent for pedagogy will lead this book to the forefront, ahead of the competition. The first part of the book covers the basic principles of equilibrium statistical mechanics, i.e., the theory of the microcanonical, canonical, and grand canonical ensemble, the derivation of thermodynamics, and the ideal, classical Bose and Fermi gases. The second part deals with how one takes into account the effects of interactions. Here, Feynman's path integrals are central and give a certain degree of unity in the various approaches which can be used.
