A Kinetic View of Statistical Physics
Aimed at graduate students, this book explores some of the core phenomena in non-equilibrium statistical physics. It focuses on the development and application of theoretical methods to help students develop their problem-solving skills. The book begins with microscopic transport processes: diffusion, collision-driven phenomena, and exclusion. It then presents the kinetics ...more

An excellent, up-to-date and very readable account of what is popularly known as non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. Slightly different from the traditional books of the subject: it focuses on the details of often-unmentioned intricacies of mathematical steps. I specially liked the informative boxed texts. Highly recommended for folks who have a graduate-level course on equilibrium statistical mechanics already.
