Thermodynamic Extension of Density-functional Theory
by Robert Balawender, Andrzej Holas
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 144
Density-functional theory is a rigorous approach for describing the ground state of any electronic system. Topics: Basic Massieu function, its Legendre and Massieu-Planck transforms for equilibrium state in terms of density matrix; Finite-temperature ensemble spin-density functional theory; Zero-temperature limit of the ensemble spin-density functional theory.

This undergraduate-level text applies quantum mechanics to some chemical and physical problems, covering wave functions for the hydrogen atom, perturbation theory, the Pauli exclusion principle, and the structure of simple and complex molecules.
Physical Chemistry is the application of physical principles and measurements to understand the properties of matter. Advanced topics include spectroscopic methods and computational tools to provide atomic-level understanding for applications.

This textbook is intended primarily for students beginning the subject of Physical Chemistry. The experimental data are first presented with the statement of the laws, then the explanation of the facts by the formulation of the theory.
by Walter John Moore
An account of physical chemistry for students of science and engineering. The treatment is more precise than is customary in elementary books, and most of the relationships have been given at least a heuristic derivation from fundamental principles.
