Thermodynamics : a dynamical systems approach / Wassim M. Haddad, VijaySekhar Chellaboina, Sergey G. Nersesov.

This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statisti...
