Abstract:

"This one-semester course text introduces basic principles of thermodynamics and considers a variety of applications in science and engineering. The modern coverage is compact yet self contained and holistic, with adequate material in a concise and economically-priced book for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates reading for first and higher degrees, and for professionals in research and industry. The mathematical prerequisite is an understanding of partial differentiation." "Some of the work is controversial, notably that concerned with black holes where Dr Dunning-Davies gives results and expresses conclusions in direct conflict of Stephen Hawking. This may arouse, implant and develop a critical faculty in the minds of thinking students, leading perhaps to discussion and debate."--Jacket.
