This volume of the EAP series contains model solutions of the problems formulated in volume 7,
Statistical Mechanics: Lecture Notes. For reader’s convenience, the problem assignments are
reproduced in this volume as well, although the accompanying figures are frequently more detailed,
extended to explain the solutions. The appendices A (Selected mathematical formulas) and B
(Selected physical constants), common for all parts of the series, are also included in this volume.
Since the whole series is strongly focused on the development of problem solution skills, the model solutions are rather detailed, and in some cases (particularly in the more difficult problems, marked by asterisks) extend and/or enhance the lecture material.
Numbering of formulas within each solution is local, by asterisks; references to formulas in other
solutions are clearly indicated. The solutions also have numerous references to formulas in the
lecture notes of this (SM) part of the EAP series, and occasionally those in other parts of the series.
In the latter case, the acronym of the part is included into the reference.
A file with 25 additional problems, which allow shorter solutions and hence are suitable for
exams (also with model solutions) is available to university instructors from the publisher by
The author tried hard to eliminate all errors in the solutions, but they have not passed a rigorous
review by qualified others, and are presented here without warranty
