Complete guide to the derivation of thermodynamic identities using Jacobians to simplify the process Most books on thermodynamics are written for engineers or chemists; this book is written for physicists Use of computer similuations, an element not used often in past thermodynamics texts, is explored due to its importance in today's world Theoretical integration of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics Request the Solutions Manual New to this Edition: Several chapters have been expanded and new ones added in order to incorporate the latest developments in the field Massieu functions {Legendre transforms of the entropy) have been introduced to enable a consistent discussion of negative temperatures A new numerical method for calculating the properties of a Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac gases has been added
