Pressestimmen

'... essential reading for philosophers of physics interested in statistical mechanics and of deep interest to those in physics and mathematics interested in foundational issues.' Larry Sklar, author of Physics and Chance '... it will become the standard reference for philosophers of science on foundational questions of statistical physics and related matters. It will be likewise useful as an advanced textbook.' Jan von Plato, author of Creating Modern Probability
