I've studied differential geometry just enough to be confident with differential forms. Now I want to see application of this formalism in thermodynamics. I'm looking for a small reference, to learn ...
The first law of thermodynamics divides the internal energy change into contributions of heat and work. $$\text dU=\omega_Q-\omega_W,$$ Here I chose the notation to emphasise that the two parts are ...
In physics and engineering sources, calculus-based formalisms - whether differential forms on a manifold, or "differentials" of functions of several variables - are presented as a way of modeling and ...
