Great Experiments in Physics: Designed for both undergraduate and graduate students, this authoritative milestone in the foundational development of thermodynamics provides a unique reference for all physicists and engineers.
Introduction to the Physics of Fluids and Solids. Volume 3 of Pauli Lectures on Physics. Elements of Statistical Thermodynamics: Foundations and Applications Elias P. At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of exposition of the basic concepts and principles system, property, state, process, first law, energy, equilibrium, stable equilibrium, second law, entropy allows rigorous general definitions of energy and entropy valid for all systems large and small, few- and many- particles and all states stable and non-stable equilibrium, as well as non-equilibrium.
Reprint of the Dover edition, an augmented and corrected republication of the MacMillan Publishing Company, New York, edition. Foundations and Applications Thermodynamics: Results up to here apply to all systems,including a single particle. The treatment resolves conceptual loopholes and logical deficiencies which are present in traditional treatments of thermodynamics, and it is rigorous because it builds up a set of unambiguous definitions of all the basic concepts needed in the exposition system, property, state; nonequilibrium, equilibrium, and stable equilibrium state; process, weight process, reversible process; thermal reservoir.
Proofs and details can be skipped because the students may find them in the book, if they wish, but the important aspect remains that the approach is rigorous and logically unambiguous.
GyftopoulosGian Paolo Beretta Snippet view – Principles of Thermodynamics and Statistical Themodynamics. Heat is defined rigorously, and it is not used to define entropy! Worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems illustrate the use of energy and entropy balances as powerful analytical keystones in physics and engineering.

The Great Physicists from Galileo to Einstein. It adopts the statement of second law introduced by Hatsopoulos and Keenan ini. Worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems illustrate the use of energy and entropy balances as powerful analytical keystones in physics and engineering.

Elements of Chemical Thermodynamics: But the simple and general extension to nonequilibrium — absent from traditional expositions and provided here avoiding intentionally any statistical reasoning — makes the approach timely and relevant for a variety of applications at thermodynamis frontiers of the many fields of science and engineering where nonequilibrium is the keyword. The text provides material for undergraduate and graduate courses. Because neither the students nor the teachers need to be puzzled by the typical logical difficulties and ambiguities of the traditional expositions entropy defined in terms of heat and temperature, heat and temperature defined in terms of entropythey can all proceed quickly and safely to the applications of interest.
In particular, entropy is defined before and independently of the definitions of temperature gyftoplulos heat, and of the simple-system model for many-particle thermoydnamics. Courier CorporationJul 12, – Science – pages. The book has had a scientific role in the development of thermodynamics, particularly because it has provided the first noncircular definition of entropy, valid also for nonequilibrium states.
