The author adopted the principles of conservation and degradation of energy as the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, and deduced the ordinary forms of these laws from those principles. Chapters I, II contain a general sketch of the most important facts and definitions of thermodynamics as based on experience.

Computational foundation of thermodynamics based on deterministic finite precision computation without resort to statistics. A new 2nd Law without the concept of entropy is proved to be a consequence of the 1st Law and finite precision computation.

This course surveys various uses of 'entropy' concepts in the study of PDE, both linear and nonlinear. This is a mathematics course, the main concern is PDE and how various notions involving entropy have influenced our understanding of PDE.

The book goes from the fundamentals up to several applications in different scientific fields: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products, Non Equilibrium Thermodynamics, etc.
