The material available from this page is a pdf version of three chapters of an unpublished book on thermodynamics. If you need postscript please follow this link: postscript

Table Of Contents

  1. Development of Thermodynamics

  2. Plausible Reasoning

  3. Gibbs Formalism - Physical Derivation

A tar file containing all of the pdf is available. Additionally, a tar file containing these chapters as postscript is also available.

These three chapters are all of this book that I have. However, I have reason to believe that there are other typed chapters of this book. If you have any additionaly chapters of this book please contact me.
