Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00-11:45.

Book: The recommended book for the course is Thermal Physics by Kittel and Kroemer. This is actually the second edition. The first edition, which I slightly prefer, is just by Kittel. The first edition is no longer in print but you might be able to find a second hand copy on Amazon or elsewhere. Either edition will do.
