'In A Student's Guide to Entropy, Don Lemons conveys both mathematical and physical intuition of entropy … [he] is very thorough, clear, and succinct in his explanations, making sure that no subtlety is left unnoticed or unaccounted for. The reader feels that he/she is being taught and guided by an experienced teacher of thermodynamics and entropy … This book will be essential not only to students but also to faculty who are charged with the difficult task of teaching a subject that involves entropy … a thorough, self-contained guide to entropy for students and teachers.' Effrosyni Seitaridou, American Journal of Physics

'The book is well written … Highly recommended.' Choice

'… a truly first-rate book on the subject, and I would happily recommend it as the main (and inexpensive) text for a course of statistical mechanics.' The Observatory

'A Student's Guide to Entropy is an excellent textbook for undergraduate students and early stage graduate students in physics and engineering. … Each concept is well defined - mathematical derivation of theories is rigorous and proceeds from fundamental notions to their final form in a methodical, step-by-step manner. The physical meaning of these equations is then explained in simple words, which is perhaps the most impressive feature of this book.' Prashant Khare, Contemporary Physics

Über das Produkt

Striving to explore the subject in as simple a manner as possible, this book helps readers understand the elusive concept of entropy, and is an ideal supplement to undergraduate courses in physics, engineering, chemistry and mathematics. Nearly 50 end-of-chapter exercises test readers' understanding.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Clear, Systematic, Readable Approach 23. August 2015
Von Andrew Cooke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I studied physics almost 30 years ago. Since then I have drifted into software engineering, with an interest in the more mathematical side of things. So I bought this book to check out the similarities between thermodynamic and infortmatic (if that is a word) entropy.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The book arrived a few days ago and I have now read five out of the eight chapters - much more than I originally intended - for the simple pleasure of seeing so much, so clearly explained. I wish this book had been available when I was a student!

I can identify two reasons why this book is so good:

First, it starts with the simplest approach and then builds on those foundations. This makes it easier to understand, because things become only gradually more complex, and also more entertaining - you are constantly questioning what you are shown, and then find that your questions are answered in the next section.

Second, it takes pains to explain how things are constructed to have certain properties. This removes much of the "magic" I remembered from the thermodynamics courses I took.

But following those two guidelines alone could still produce an awful book. So credit must also go to the general style, and clear writing.

[Also, I am amazed another review can claim that the formula do not come with derivations. My only guess is that there's a kind of student who is not happy unless faced with pages and faces of incomprehensible algebra. There is certainly algebra here, but only when necessary. Sometimes you can frame a problem so clearly that the maths is simple to write down.]

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a great overview! 14. März 2015
Von Dr. Tom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was an absolute delight to read. I am an ex-physicist, so I had some of the required mathematical background, which I'm sure helped. But the author's overview and journey through the topic was great. Clearly the author knew the history of the subject as well as the various shifts in how Entropy was considered from classical through quantum treatments. And he has synthesized all of this into a clear overview that gave me a great understanding and appreciation for entropy worked, to the point where I think most readers who follow the book can apply entropy concepts to almost any system. (And bonus points for also having a brief but surprisingly helpful overview of Gibbs free energy.) I'd read of both Boltzmann's and Planck's contributions before, but the real meaning of what they'd done came through best in this text.

I really wish there were other books like this on other deep topics in physics. This is one I'll keep on my (virtual) shelf.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clear and Concise 22. März 2015
Von eric schmidt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. My undergraduate Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics course uses Reif for the required text, which I honestly can't stand. I got this book and I'm also using 'Concepts in Thermal Physics' http://www.amazon.com/Concepts-Thermal-Physics-Stephen-Blundell/dp/0199562105/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427051543&sr=8-1&keywords=concepts+in+thermal+physics, together I'm learning a lot more than I had been from Reif.

This book is concise, which is something missing from many textbooks these days, and very clear. I just wish there was a solutions manual available.

Generally useful, but I find some of the ideas are not presented clearly within the context provided. I have to supply additional context from other writings on entropy.

A well organized examination of thermodynamics from an entropic point of view. Develops a clear conceptual appreciation for entropy and its significance.
