Set of lecture notes for an upper-division thermodynamics and statistical mechanics course. Covered topics are classical thermodynamics, the thermodynamics of the atmosphere, heat engines, specific heat capacities of gases and solids, etc.
A textbook on statistical thermodynamics at the senior undergraduate level. The course covers the statistical thermodynamics of ideal gases from quantized energy levels. Applications on gas reaction kinetics and kinetic theory of gases are included.

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.

This course surveys various uses of 'entropy' concepts in the study of PDE, both linear and nonlinear. This is a mathematics course, the main concern is PDE and how various notions involving entropy have influenced our understanding of PDE.
