Thermodynamics is the much abused slave of many masters • physicists who love the totally impractical Carnot process, • mechanical engineers who design power stations and refrigerators, • chemists who are successfully synthesizing ammonia and are puzzled by photosynthesis, • meteorologists who calculate cloud bases and predict föhn, boraccia and scirocco, • physico-chemists who vulcanize rubber and build fuel cells, • chemical engineers who rectify natural gas and distil f- mented potato juice, • metallurgists who improve steels and harden surfaces, • - trition counselors who recommend a proper intake of calories, • mechanics who adjust heat exchangers, • architects who construe – and often misconstrue – ch- neys, • biologists who marvel at the height of trees, • air conditioning engineers who design saunas and the ventilation of air plane cabins, • rocket engineers who create supersonic flows, et cetera. Not all of these professional groups need the full depth and breadth of ther- dynamics. For some it is enough to consider a well-stirred tank, for others a s- tionary nozzle flow is essential, and yet others are well-served with the partial d- ferential equation of heat conduction. It is therefore natural that thermodynamics is prone to mutilation; different group-specific meta-thermodynamics’ have emerged which serve the interest of the groups under most circumstances and leave out aspects that are not often needed in their fields.

Small Systems and Fundamentals of Thermodynamics

Small systems are a very active area of research and development due to improved instrumentation that allows for spatial resolution in the range of sizes from one to 100 nm. In this size range, many physical and chemical properties change, which opens up new approaches to the study of substances and their practical application. This affects both traditional fields of knowledge and many other new fields including physics, chemistry, biology, etc. This book highlights new developments in statistical thermodynamics that answer the most important questions about the specifics of small systems - when one cannot apply equations or traditional thermodynamic models.

Geschrieben für Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften, der Chemie und der Physik werden in diesem Lehrbuch die thermodynamischen Grundlagen sauber hergeleitet; dazu reichen die Mathematikkenntnisse des Grundstudiums. Das Buch enthält Übungsaufgaben und ist auch zum Selbststudium geeignet. Historische Anmerkungen lockern den Text auf und illustrieren die Begriffe von Temperatur, Energie und Entropie, indem sie deren schwierige Entstehung nachvollziehen. Unter sorgfältiger Herleitung der thermodynamischen Grundlagen behandelt der Autor zahlreiche Anwendungen in der Physik und der Chemie, der Werkstoffkunde, der Wärmeübertragung, der Gasdynamik usw. Die Neuauflage enthält zahlreiche Verbesserungen, behält aber das bewährte pädagogische Gesamtkonzept bei.

Thermodynamics, as a sub-branch of physics, refers to the study of the interrelation between energy, work, heat and temperature. It is based on the four major laws of thermodynamics and is divided into four major parts, namely, chemical thermodynamics, classical thermodynamics, equilibrium treatment and statistical mechanism. The topics covered in this text offer the readers new insights in the field of thermodynamics. Different approaches, evaluations and methodologies have been included in it. This textbook is an essential guide for both academicians and those who wish to pursue this discipline further.
