about

Thermodynamics is an ever evolving subject. This book aims to introduce to advanced undergraduate students & graduate students the fundamental ideas & notions of the first & second laws of thermodynamics in a manner unavailable in the usual textbooks on the subject of thermodynamics. For example, it treats the notions of unavailable work, compensated & uncompensated heats, & dissipation, which make it possible to formulate the thermodynamic laws in more broadened forms than those in the conventional treatment of equilibrium thermodynamics. It thus strives to prepare students for more advanced subjects of irreversible processes, which are encountered in our everyday scientific activities. In addition, it also aims to provide them with functional and practical knowledge of equilibrium chemical thermodynamics of reversible processes in real fluids. It discusses temperature, work and heat, thermodynamic laws, equilibrium conditions & thermodynamic stability, thermodynamics of reversible processes in gases and liquids, in surfaces, chemical equilibria, reversible processes in electrolyte solutions & dielectrics in static electric & magnetic fields. A couple of examples for irreversible processes associated with fluid flows and chemical pattern formation & wave propagations are discussed as examples for applications of broader treatments of thermodynamic laws in the realm of irreversible phenomena.
