Treatise on Thermodynamics
by Max Planck - Longmans, Green , 1903
The classic by the Nobel Laureate is still recognized as one of the best introductions to thermodynamics. A model of conciseness and clarity, it covers fundamental facts and definitions, first and second fundamental principles of thermodynamics, etc.
Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics
by Claude Garrod - Oxford University Press , 1995
This text provides a firm grounding in the laws and principles of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics that are essential to the study of physics. It presents the subject in a clear manner, and is based on the up-to-date research in the field.
Lecture Notes on Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics
by Daniel Arovas - University of California, San Diego , 2013
Contents: Probability 2. Thermodynamics 3. Ergodicity and the Approach to Equilibrium 4. Statistical Ensembles 5. Noninteracting Quantum Systems 6. Classical Interacting Systems 7. Mean Field Theory of Phase Transitions 8. Nonequilibrium Phenomena.
Thermodynamics: Fundamentals and Its Application in Science
by Ricardo Morales-Rodriguez (ed.) - InTech , 2012
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.
by George Hartley Bryan - Teubner , 1907
An introductory treatise dealing with first principles and their direct applications. Author adopted the principles of conservation and degradation of energy as the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, and deduced the ordinary forms of these laws.
Thermodynamics and Chemistry
by Howard DeVoe , 2011
Thermodynamics and Chemistry is designed primarily as a textbook for a one-semester course in classical chemical thermodynamics at the graduate or undergraduate level. It can also serve as a supplementary text and thermodynamics reference source.
Lecture Notes on Thermodynamics
by Joseph M. Powers - University of Notre Dame , 2010
Basic concepts of thermodynamics. Topics covered: Properties of a pure substance; Work and heat; First law of thermodynamics; Second law of thermodynamics; Power and refrigeration systems; Theoretical foundations of classical thermodynamics.
Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics
by Hans Kroha - University of Bonn , 2005
Contents: Introduction and overview; Thermodynamics; Foundations of statistical physics; Ideal systems: some examples; Systems of identical particles; General formulation of statistical mechanics; Interacting systems in thermodyn. equilibrium.
The Physics and Mathematics of the Second Law of Thermodynamics
by Elliott H. Lieb, Jakob Yngvason - arXiv , 1999
The essential postulates of classical thermodynamics are formulated, from which the second law is deduced as the principle of increase of entropy in irreversible adiabatic processes that take one equilibrium state to another.
Thermal and Statistical Physics
by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik - Princeton University Press , 2010
A text on two related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book brings some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.
Fundamentals of Thermodynamics
by J. Karl Johnson - University of Pittsburgh , 2009
This text will provide the student with basic thermodynamic tools for solving many classes of problems. It is intended for first year chemical engineering graduate students with at least one undergraduate course in classical thermodynamics.
Entropy and Partial Differential Equations
by Lawrence C. Evans - UC Berkeley , 2003
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.
by Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson , 2008
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.
by Leo Lue - BookBoon , 2009
From the table of contents: introduction, single component systems, multicomponent systems, the ideal solution model, partial molar properties, nonideal solutions, stability, solid-liquid equilibrium, gas solubility and Henry's law, and more.
Heat and Thermodynamics
by J. B. Tatum , 2008
The text covers temperature, thermal conduction, thermodynamic processes, properties of gases, the first and second laws, heat capacity, expansion of gases, enthalpy, the Joule-Thomson experiments, heat engines, the Clausius-Clapeyron equation, etc.
Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics: An intermediate level course
by Richard Fitzpatrick - Lulu.com , 2007
Set of lecture notes for an upper-division thermodynamics and statistical mechanics course. Covered topics are classical thermodynamics, the thermodynamics of the atmosphere, heat engines, specific heat capacities of gases and solids, etc.
