**Computational Thermodynamics**

by

**Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson**

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.
