GYFTOPOULOS THERMODYNAMICS PDF

Gyftopoulos received an undergraduate degree in mechanical and electrical engineering in from the National Technical University of Athens , and a Doctor of Science degree in electrical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in At MIT, he initially focused on nuclear reactor safety and control. After meeting professors George N. Hatsopoulos and Joseph H. Keenan , [2] his interests moved towards thermodynamics, in an attempt to give a consistent and rigorous exposition, free of the logical flaws and the limitations commonly associated with this discipline: the result was a non- statistical theory, applicable to both macroscopic and microscopic systems, both in equilibrium and in non-equilibrium. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Thermodynamics : Foundations and Applications. Elias P. Gyftopoulos , Gian Paolo Beretta. Designed for both undergraduate and graduate students, this authoritative milestone in the foundational development of thermodynamics provides a unique reference for all physicists and engineers.

Basic concepts and applications are discussed in complete detail with attention to generality and logical consistency, removing ambiguities and limitations of traditional presentations. Worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems illustrate the use of energy and entropy balances as powerful analytical keystones in physics and engineering.

The text provides material for undergraduate and graduate courses. At the advanced level, the unique non-traditional order of exposition 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.

In particular, entropy is defined before and independently of the definitions of temperature and heat, and of the simple-system model for many-particle systems.
