A companion volume, Statistical Physics of Fields, discusses non-mean field aspects of scaling and critical phenomena, through the perspective of renormalization group. It contains a chapter on probability and related issues such as the central limit theorem and information theory, and covers interacting particles, with an extensive description of the van der Waals equation and its derivation by mean field approximation.

Eduardo rated it really liked it Mar 09, I used it to study mainly quantum statistical mechanics portion. Perhaps going back to the book now would be a better experience with an increase in mathematical maturity and a better grasp of physical systemswhich I will most likely do after going through Pathria's Statistical Mechanics book as a review.
