At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of gyftopoulis 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. Euler relations and its consequences, Gibbs-Duhem relation, Gibbs free energy in terms of chemical potentials.

Thermodynamics: Foundations and Applications

Elements of Chemical Thermodynamics: 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. Mathematical Tools for Physics. Courier CorporationJul 12, – Science – pages.


Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical 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. Fundamentals of Mathematical Physics. GyftopoulosGian Paolo Beretta Snippet view – Eight Lectures on Theoretical Physics.

Foundations and Applications By: 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.

But the simple and general gyftooulos 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 the frontiers of the many fields of science and engineering where nonequilibrium is the keyword. It adopts the statement of second law introduced by Hatsopoulos and Keenan ini.
