 Summary
 This coursetested primer provides graduate students and nonspecialists with a basic understanding of the concepts and methods of statistical physics and demonstrates their wide range of applications to interdisciplinary topics in the field of complex system sciences, including selected aspects of theoretical modeling in biology and the social sciences. Generally speaking, the goals of statistical physics may be summarized as follows: on the one hand to study systems composed of a large number of interacting units, and on the other to predict the macroscopic, collective behavior of the system considered from the perspective of the microscopic laws governing the dynamics of the individual entities. These two goals are essentially also shared by what is now called 'complex systems science', and as such, systems studied in the framework of statistical physics may be considered to be among the simplest examples of complex systems  while also offering a rather well developed mathematical treatment. The second edition has been significantly revised and expanded, featuring in particular three new chapters addressing nonconserved particles, evolutionary population dynamics, networks, properties of both individual and coupled simple dynamical systems, and convergence theorems, as well as short appendices that offer helpful hints on how to perform simple stochastic simulations in practice. Yet, the original spirit of the book  to remain accessible to a broad, nonspecialized readership  has been kept throughout: the format is a set of concise, modular and selfcontained topical chapters, avoiding technicalities and jargon as much as possible, and complemented by a wealth of workedout examples, so as to make this work useful as a selfstudy text or as textbook for short courses. From the reviews of the first edition: "... a good introduction to basic concepts of statistical physics and complex systems for students and researchers with an interest in complex systems in other fields ... ." Georg Hebermehl, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1237, 2012 "... this short text remains very refreshing for the mathematician." Dimitri Petritis, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012k
