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.

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.
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 book shall provide some chemical insight for physicist and material scientists. It is devoted to simple concepts that only require back-on-the-envelope calculations. The emphasis is on qualitative considerations instead of accurate predictions.
