Advanced Statistical Mechanics

The course note on Advanced Statistical Mechanics: Phase transitions and critical phenomena is about different phases of matter and its study using statistical mechanics. In this course note phenomenology of phase transitions of different order will be elaborated, statistical thermodynamics of these systems will be established, different models will be constructed to study the phenomena, analytical and numerical techniques will be discussed for solving these models.
