"An excellent introduction to the difficult and important discipline of Statistical Mechanics. It is clear, concise, and rigorous. There is a very good chapter on the ergodic theorem (with a complete proof!) and a highly lucid chapter on statistical foundations of thermodynamics useful to teachers and to mathematicians.". Thermodynamics: Foundations and Applications: Gyftopoulos, Elias P., Beretta, Gian Paolo: Books - (8).

The book guides the reader from the foundations of statisti- cal thermodynamics including the theory of intermolecular forces to modern computer-aided applications in chemical en- gineering and physical chemistry. The approach is new. The fields leading textbook for more than three decades, Fundamentals of Engineering Thermodynamics offers a comprehensive introduction to essential principles and applications in the context of engineering. Now in its Tenth Edition, this book retains its characteristic rigor and systematic approach to thermodynamics with enhanced pedagogical features that aid in .

This book is intended for all engineering and science students as a continuation from college physics. By analytical thermodynamics, we mean the treatment of basic concepts and applications of thermodynamics with analytical methods of mathematics. Power and refrigeration systems; Theoretical foundations of classical thermodynamics. ( Book Title:Understanding Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics: Foundations, Applications, Frontiers This book offers a homogeneous presentation of the many faces of nonequilibrium thermodynamics. The first part is devoted to a description of the nowadays thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory of nonequilibrium processes.

I commend the authors for the boldness and creativity of their new theory. They say they have newly defined terms ( entropy) and laws (the 1st and 2nd laws of thermodynamics; after dismissing statistical mechanics from theoretical foundations) that do away with the circularity and subjectivity of current by: This accessible book describes how the laws of thermodynamics apply to Earth system processes, from solar radiation to motion, geochemical cycling and biotic activity.

It presents a novel view of the thermodynamic Earth system explaining how it functions and evolves, how different forms of disequilibrium are being maintained, and how Cited by: This webpage.

I started this webpage as a supplement to my book on the "Thermodynamic Foundations of the Earth System", published by Cambridge University Press in March This book is about how thermodynamics applies to the Earth system. It is less about thermodynamics itself, but rather about how it applies to Earth system processes, their interactions, and.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Fong, Peter. Foundations of thermodynamics. New York, Oxford University Press, (OCoLC) Document Type. In this introductory textbook, thermodynamics is presented as a natural extension of mechanics, so that the laws and concepts learned in mechanics serve to get acquainted with the theory.

The authors present the foundations of thermodynamics by linking the beautiful formality of primary laws to a sharp description of the underlying microscopic world.

Mathematical Foundations of Thermodynamics details the core concepts of the mathematical principles employed in thermodynamics. The book discusses the topics in a way that physical meanings are assigned to the theoretical terms. The coverage of the text includes the mechanical systems and adiabatic processes; topological considerations; and equilibrium.

This Is An Introductory Book Which Explains The Foundations Of The Subject And Its Application. It Is Intended Primarily For Graduate Students But May Provide Useful Information And Reading To Science And Engineering Students At All Levels.

It Assumes That Readers Have Knowledge Of Basic Thermodynamics And Quantum Mechanics. With This, The Theory Has Been 3/5(1).

Based on the foundations of thermodynamics and the equilibrium conditions for the coexistence of two phases in a magnetic Ising-like system, we show, first, that there is a critical point where the isothermal susceptibility diverges and the specific heat may remain finite, and second, that near the critical point the entropy of the system, and therefore all free energies, do obey scaling.

Overview. The first part of the book starts by presenting the problem thermodynamics is trying to solve, and provides the postulates on which thermodynamics is founded. It then develops upon this foundation to discuss reversible processes, heat engines, thermodynamics potentials, Maxwell's relations, stability of thermodynamics systems, and first-order phase transitions.

Well written, Truesdell sets thermodynamics on a stronger foot than all the mumbo-jumbo usualy found in. Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that deals with heat and temperature, and their relation to energy, work, radiation, and properties of behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics which convey a quantitative description using measurable macroscopic physical quantities, but may be explained in terms of microscopic constituents by.
