Chapter 4: The Methodology of Statistical Mechanics 

written by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik

We develop the basic methodology of statistical mechanics and provide a microscopic foundation for the concepts of temperature and entropy. We use computer simulations will be to explore these concepts. These simulations can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
