Thermodynamics is the science that describes the behavior of matter at the macroscopic scale, and how this arises from individual molecules. As such, it is a subject of profound practical and fundamental importance to many science and engineering fields. Despite extremely varied applications ranging from nanomotors to cosmology, the core concepts of thermodynamics such as equilibrium and entropy are the same across all disciplines. A Conceptual Guide to Thermodynamics serves as a concise, conceptual and practical supplement to the major thermodynamics textbooks used in various fields. Presenting clear explanations of the core concepts, the book aims to improve fundamental understanding of the material, as well as homework and exam performance. Distinctive features include: Terminology and Notation Key: A universal translator that addresses the myriad of conventions, terminologies, and notations found across the major thermodynamics texts. Content Maps: Specific references to each major thermodynamic text by section and page number for each new concept that is introduced. Helpful Hints and Don’t Try Its: Numerous useful tips for solving problems, as well as warnings of common student pitfalls. Unique Explanations: Conceptually clear, mathematically fairly simple, yet also sufficiently precise and rigorous. A more extensive set of reference materials, including older and newer editions of the major textbooks, as well as a number of less commonly used titles, is available online at http://www.conceptualthermo.com. Undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, physics, engineering, geosciences and biological sciences will benefit from this book, as will students preparing for graduate school entrance exams and MCATs.

This book explores, explains and debunks some common misconceptions about quantum physics, particle physics, space-time, and multiverse cosmology, and seeks to separate the science from the pseudoscience. Section one clarifies what the basic experimental facts imply about the nature of nonlocality, the quantum wavefunction, and what can be measured. It discusses two key quantum experiments: the double-slit experiment and the EPR experiment. In both cases, reasoning is by analogy with everyday situations that the reader is already familiar with, with the mathematics kept to a bare minimum. Section two covers: • The size of elementary particles • The structure of atoms • Mini black holes and why they couldn’t have destroyed the Earth when the LHC was switched on • The Higgs boson destroying the universe • Parallel universes The final section of the book covers multiverse cosmology, showing that it follows the standard methodology in science: forming a hypothesis about the natural world based on observation (with the help of mathematics) and then looking for evidence that further supports it. It clarifies that the multiverse concept is based on mathematics, it is a prediction/consequence of string theories, and a subject of current research activity, rather than a construct of pseudoscience or science fiction. The material is presented in a layperson-friendly language followed by additional technical sections which explain basic equations and principles. This feature is very attractive to readers who want to learn more about the theories involved beyond the basic description.

Das Lehrbuch umfasst den klassischen Stoff der technischen Thermodynamik in kompakter Form. In den ersten Kapiteln werden die thermodynamischen Grundbegriffe System, Zustandsgr??e, Prozessgr??e, thermisches Gleichgewicht und Temperatur eingef?hrt. Der anschlie?end diskutierte erste Hauptsatz als thermodynamisches ?quivalent der Energieerhaltung erlaubt in seinen unterschiedlichen Formulierungen die saubere Definition von Arbeit, W?rme, innerer Energie und Enthalpie. Das Modellsystem des idealen Gases erm?glicht die Ableitung von thermischen und kalorischen Zustandsgleichungen und f?hrt hin zum zweiten Hauptsatz der Thermodynamik, der das Prinzip der Irreversibilit?t thermodynamischer Prozesse zum Ausdruck bringt und den Begriff der Entropie motiviert. Die folgenden Kapitel befassen sich mit thermodynamischen Kreisprozessen mit und ohne Phasen?nderungen unter Verwendung idealer und realer Gase. Das Buch schlie?t mit einer Einf?hrung in Gasgemische und die Thermodynamik chemischer Reaktionen, die typischerweise in gro?technischen Prozessen auftreten. Das Buch ist vorlesungsbegleitend und zum Selbststudium geeignet: In jedem Kapitel folgt auf die Darstellung der Grundlagen eine auch zum Nachschlagen nutzbare, ausf?hrliche Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Sachverhalte und eine Aufgabensammlung. Diese enth?lt Verst?ndnisfragen im Multiple-Choice-Stil sowie nach Schwierigkeitsgrad gestaffelte Rechenaufgaben. F?r das erfolgreiche Selbststudium sind alle Aufgaben mit zweistufigen L?sungshinweisen versehen: im ersten Schritt unterst?tzen vertiefende Fragen bei der Erarbeitung des L?sungswegs, im zweiten Schritt werden konkrete Hilfestellungen in Form von zu verwendenden Formeln oder Sachverhalten angegeben.

This practical reference for medicinal and pharmaceutical chemists combines the theoretical background with modern methods as well as applications from recent lead finding and optimization projects. Divided into two parts on the thermodynamics and kinetics of drug-receptor interaction, the text provides the conceptual and methodological basis for characterizing binding mechanisms for drugs and other bioactive molecules. It covers all currently used methods, from experimental approaches, such as ITC or SPR, right up to the latest computational methods. Case studies of real-life lead or drug development projects are also included so readers can apply the methods learned to their own projects. Finally, the benefits of a thorough binding mode analysis for any drug development project are summarized in an outlook chapter written by the editors.
