Book Description

Reissued in the Cambridge Mathematical Library, this classic book outlines the theory of thermodynamic formalism which was developed to describe the properties of certain physical systems consisting of a large number of subunits. Background material on physics has been collected in appendices to help the reader. Supplementary work is provided in the form of exercises and problems that were "open" at the original time of writing which are now included at the end of the book. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Charles Ashbacher HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
Thermodynamic formalism is an area of mathematics developed to describe physical systems with a large number of components. A combination of advanced physics and mathematics, it is used to describe dynamic systems moving towards equilibrium and quantum mechanics applied to systems. The level of this book is advanced, generally the material would only be suitable for students at the graduate level. Exercises are given at the end of each chapter, although solutions are not provided. Additional background material on the necessary physics is included in a series of appendices.

The treatment of thermodynamic formalism is brief, detailed and complete. I strongly recommend the book as a textbook or study aid in that area.
