This text is a major revision of An Introduction to Thermodynamics, Kinetic Theory, and Statistical Mechanics by Francis Sears. The general approach has been unaltered and the level remains much the same, perhaps being increased somewhat by greater coverage. The text is particularly useful for advanced undergraduates in physics and engineering who have some familiarity with calculus.
