This is a book about statistical mechanics at the advanced undergraduate level. It assumes a background in
classical mechanics through the concept of phase space, in quantum mechanics through the Pauli exclusion
principle, and in mathematicsâ€¦

This book starts by presenting an overview of the statistical thought process. By the end of chapter 2, students are already familiar with concepts such as hypotheses, level of significance, p-values, errors. Normally these topics are not introducedâ€¦
