The subject of thermodynamics deals with converting energy efficiently into work. It requires a thorough understanding of the various abstract concepts. This eminently readable introductory text provides a sound foundation to understand these concepts used to express the laws of thermodynamics. The emphasis is on the fundamentals rather than spoon-feeding the subject matter.

In his third book, Thermodynamics: Principles and Applications, published by World Scientific, Ismail Tosun (Middle East Technical University) helps students to easily grasp the fundamentals of thermodynamics.

The concepts are explained with utmost clarity in simple and elegant language. Answers to all problems are provided allowing students to check their solutions. A complete Solutions Manual is available to instructors.

The book retails US$88/£58 at leading bookstores.. For further information regarding the book, please visit http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/9670.
