Item Picture
written by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik
This web site is designed to support the effective teaching of statistical and thermal physics at the undergraduate and graduate levels. It includes simulations of the properties of standard systems and models used in thermal physics classes. Also available are lecture notes, a listing of textbooks, and links to a range of other resources.

This project is a collaborative open source development of thermal physics curriculum.
