The author adopted the principles of conservation and degradation of energy as the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, and deduced the ordinary forms of these laws from those principles. Chapters I, II contain a general sketch of the most important facts and definitions of thermodynamics as based on experience.

Computational foundation of thermodynamics based on deterministic finite precision computation without resort to statistics. A new 2nd Law without the concept of entropy is proved to be a consequence of the 1st Law and finite precision computation.

Applications of the thermodynamic and statistical mechanics of small systems range from molecular biology to micro-mechanics, including models of nano-transport, Brownian motors, and (living or artificial) self-propelled organisms.

The essential postulates of classical thermodynamics are formulated, from which the second law is deduced as the principle of increase of entropy in irreversible adiabatic processes that take one equilibrium state to another.
