This textbook presents an exposition of equilibrium thermodynamics and its purposes to numerous parts of physics with specific cognizance to section transitions and significant phenomena. The functions comprise numerous parts of condensed subject physics and contain additionally a bankruptcy on thermochemistry. part transitions and demanding phenomena are taken care of in accordance with the trendy improvement of the sector, in accordance with the information of universality and at the Widom scaling thought. for every subject, a mean-field or Landau concept is gifted to explain qualitatively the part transitions. those theories contain the van der Waals idea of the liquid-vapor transition, the Hildebrand-Heitler idea of normal combinations, the Griffiths-Landau thought for multicritical issues in multicomponent platforms, the Bragg-Williams conception of order-disorder in alloys, the Weiss idea of ferromagnetism, the Néel concept of antiferromagnetism, the Devonshire conception for ferroelectrics and Landau-de Gennes concept of liquid crystals. This textbook is meant for college students in physics and chemistry and offers a distinct blend of thorough theoretical rationalization and presentation of functions in either parts. bankruptcy summaries, highlighted necessities and issues of strategies let a self sustained method and deepen the knowledge.
