A Different Thermodynamics and its True Heroes

1st Edition

Evgeni B. Starikov
April 01, 2019

Modern thermodynamics is a unique but still not a logically self-consistent field of knowledge. It has a proven universal applicability and significance but its actual potential is still latent. The development of the foundations of thermodynamics was in effect non-stop but absolutely no one has...
