Summary Congratulations to Herbert Kroemer, 2000 Nobel Laureate for Physics For upper-division courses in thermodynamics or statistical mechanics, Kittel and Kroemer offers a modern approach to thermal physics that is based on the idea that all physical systems can be described in terms of their discrete quantum states, rather than drawing on 19th-century classical mechanics concepts.
Other author Kroemer, Herbert, 1928- author.
Subject Statistical thermodynamics.
