Journals and Other Reading

Some (but not all) of the journal articles we discuss in class are available in electronic form via the links below. Note that these links require access from a CMU computer, since a subscription to the journals is required.

Journal of Chemical Physics

Journal of Physical Chemistry B

Physical Review Letters


Articles that are not available electronically can be found in the Carnegie Mellon libraries. It is always a good idea to check the library catalog before you go to find out which library to go to etc.

Some books that will be referred to on occasion in class and that are useful resources for further reading are

"Molecular Thermodynamics of Fluid-Phase Equilibria", J. M. Prausnitz, R. N. Lichtenthaler, and E. G. de Azevedo (Prentice Hall, New Jersey, 1999)

"Computer Simulation of Liquids", M. P. Allen and D. J. Tildesley (Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1987)

"Introduction to Modern Statistical Mechanics", D. Chandler (Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1987)

"Statistical Mechanics", D. A. McQuarrie (Harper Collins, New York, 1973)
