Statistical thermodynamics. Course of Seminar Lectures Delivered in January - March 1944, at the School of Theoretical Physics.
Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies 1944 - FIRST EDITION, hectographed typescript, printed on rectos only, uniformly slightly browned, ff. [ii], 135, 4to, original black cloth backed terracotta card wrappers, upper cover with printed title, paper label on spine, spine faded and a bit ragged at top and tail, slight wear and uneven fading to wrappers, bold signature of E. Tyrrall in black biro at head of title-page, good One of ‘a very small edition’, as stated in a note to the Cambridge edition, 1946 (a copy of the 1948 reprint accompanies the hectographic version). ‘The idea of this seminar is to develop briefly one simple, unified standard method, capable of dealing, without changing the fundamental attitude, with ALL cases (classical, quantum, Bose-Einstein, Fermi-Dirac, etc.) and with every new problem that may turn up. The interest is focused on the general procedure, and examples are dealt with as illustrations thereof. Not a first introduction for new-comers to the subject is intended, rather a 'repetitorium'. The wording is extremely shortened about well-known stories to be found in every one of a hundred text-books, but more extended on some vital points, usually passed over in all but large monographs (as Fowler's and Tolman's). There is, essentially, only one problem in statistical thermodynamics: the distribution of a given amount of energy E over N identical systems’ (General Introduction).
