Updating their textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in fields of chemistry and physics, Dill (physical and quantitative biology, Stone Brook U.) and Bromberg, a molecular biophysicist who writes, edits, and illustrates science textbooks, explain how statistical thermodynamics uses the language of entropy, distribution function, energy, heat capacity, free energy, and partition function to predict the behaviors of molecules in physical, chemical, and biological systems. They include many applications in biology and polymer sciences, try to make the material accessible to students with a wide range of backgrounds, and use the axiomatic approach to thermodynamics as the platform on which the concepts can be explained in their simplest and most comprehensive manner. Three new chapters cover microscopic dynamics, molecular machines, and the logic of thermodynamics. Garland Science is an imprint of Taylor and Francis Group.
