Topics in Advanced Thermodynamics

This course will treat the principles of chemical thermodynamics from the basis of the theoretical energy surface, through the use of Legendre transforms, Jacobians, stability determinants and elements of Riemannian geometry. Applications of these principles to ideal and non-ideal chemical systems at high temperature and pressure in terms of predicting phase diagrams will be discussed. Three lectures per week, one term.
