Print book: English: Study edView all editions and formats Summary: This popular, often cited text returns in a softcover edition to provide a thorough introduction to statistical physics and thermodynamics, and to exhibit the universal chain of ideas leading from the laws of microphysics to the macroscopic behaviour of matter. "A beautifully written book: the physics is well described, the mathematics is precise, and the exposition is concise. Sewell achieves his stated purpose–―namely, to offer a panorama of the current state of the problem of how macroscopic phenomena can be interpreted from the laws and structures of microphysics."Cited by: @article{osti_, title = {The microphysics and macrophysics of cosmic rays}, author = {Zweibel, Ellen G.}, abstractNote = {This review paper commemorates a century of cosmic ray research, with emphasis on the plasma physics aspects.
