    4 CHAPTER 2. THERMODYNAMICS Equilibrium and the laws of thermodynam-ics Thermodynamics is based on four laws which are in short summarized as: 0. Thermodynamic equilibrium exists and is characterized by a temperature. 1. Energy is conserved. 2. Not all heat can be converted into work. 3. One cannot reach absolute zero temperature.   Unfortunately, a book by Robert Fox, The Caloric Theory of Gases from Lavoisier to Regnault, which might help illuminate the question is out of print and rare as a used book.

    The theory is based on the notion of elementary molecular processes, which manifest themselves as random changes in the extensive variables characterizing a system. The theory has a hierarchical character and, thus, can be applied at various levels of molecular detail. Book Title Statistical Thermodynamics of Nonequilibrium Processes. Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that deals with heat, work, and temperature, and their relation to energy, radiation, and properties of behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics which convey a quantitative description using measurable macroscopic physical quantities, but may be explained in terms of microscopic constituents by statistical.

      The task of integrating information into the framework of thermodynamics dates back to Maxwell and his infamous demon. Recent advances have made these ideas rigorous—and brought them into .

Farewell To Entropy, A: Statistical Thermodynamics Based On Information by Arieh Ben-Naim,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Advocates replacing "entropy" by "information," a term that has become widely used in many branches of science. This book takes a fresh approach to thermodynamics and statistical mechanics.

It uses information as a tool for predicting distributions and as the fundamental cornerstone concept of thermodynamics. This textbook discusses the fundamentals and applications of statistical thermodynamics for beginning graduate students in the physical and engineering sciences.

Building on the prototypical Maxwell–Boltzmann method and maintaining a step-by-step development of the subject, this book assumes the reader has no previous exposure to statistics, quantum mechanics or. Farewell To Entropy, A: Statistical Thermodynamics Based On Information: Ben-naim, Arieh: Books - Many of the exciting new developments in microscale engineering are based on the application of traditional principles of statistical thermodynamics.

This book offers a modern view of thermodynamics, interweaving classical and statistical thermodynamic principles and applying them to current engineering systems.
