Introduction to Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics – Oxford Scholarship
Although Oxford listed it as a graduate text, it’s suitable for and, in fact, was developed for undergrads. Part 1 develops the basic ideas of statistical mechanics, as illustrated by a complete derivation of the entropy of the classical ideal gas mechanicw on Boltzmann’s definition.
This, conversely, is written quite pedagogically a big plus for meby someone with a deep and tremendously insightful understanding of statistical mechanics.
