9780486807010: Reasoning About Luck: Probability and Its Uses in Physics (Dover Books on Physics)

This book introduces college students and other readers to the uses of probability and statistics in the physical sciences, focusing on thermal and statistical physics and touching upon quantum physics. Widely praised as beautifully written and thoughtful, Reasoning About Luck explains concepts in a way that readers can understand and enjoy, even students who are not specializing in science and those outside the classroom — only some familiarity with basic algebra is necessary. Attentive readers will come away with a solid grasp of many of the basic concepts of physics and some excellent insights into the way physicists think and work.
"If students who are not majoring in science understood no more physics than that presented by Ambegaokar, they would have a solid basis for thinking about physics and the other sciences." — Physics Today.
"There is a real need for rethinking how we teach thermal physics—at all levels, but especially to undergraduates. Professor Ambegaokar has done just that, and given us an outstanding and ambitious textbook for nonscience majors. I find Professor Ambegaokar's style throughout the book to be graceful and witty, with a nice balance of both encouragement and admonishment." — American Journal of Physics.

Book Description:

This text develops the basic ideas of mechanical motion, the molecular theory of gases, entropy as a measure of molecular agitation, and the limitations on the conversion of heat to work. It also covers the physics of the direction of time, chaos, and the role of probability in quantum mechanics.

About the Author:

Vinay Ambegaokar is Goldwin Smith Professor of Physics Emeritus at Cornell University. He is the 2015 recipient of the prestigious John Bardeen Prize for his theoretical research in the area of superconductivity.
