**Computational Thermodynamics**

by Johan Hoffman, Claes Johnson

2008**Number of pages**: 217

**Description**:

The book develops a new computational foundation of thermodynamics based on deterministic finite precision computation without resort to statistics. In particular a new 2nd Law without the concept of entropy is proved to be a consequence of the 1st Law and finite precision computation.
