This book is intended for all engineering and science students as a continuation from college physics. By analytical thermodynamics, we mean the treatment of basic concepts and applications of thermodynamics with analytical methods of mathematics.
by George Hartley Bryan - Teubner
An introductory treatise dealing with first principles and their direct applications. Author adopted the principles of conservation and degradation of energy as the fundamental laws of thermodynamics, and deduced the ordinary forms of these laws.
