of large deviations is a nice contribution to the literature on the
subject, his book has the virtue that it provides a beautifully
unified and mathematically appealing account of certain aspects of
statistical mechanics...Furthermore, he does not make the mistake

self-contained reading ... S Pogosian in Zentralblatt fur
