Elements of Statistical Thermodynamics: Second Edition by Leonard K. Nash Encompassing essentially all aspects of statistical mechanics that appear in undergraduate texts, this concise, elementary treatment shows how an atomic-molecular perspective yields new insights into macroscopic thermodynamics. 1974 edition.
Elements of Chemical Thermodynamics: Second Edition by Leonard K. Nash This survey of purely thermal data in calculating the position of equilibrium in a chemical reaction highlights the physical content of thermodynamics, as distinct from purely mathematical aspects. 1970 edition.
Thermodynamics: Foundations and Applications by Elias P. Gyftopoulos, Gian Paolo Beretta Designed by two MIT professors, this authoritative text discusses basic concepts and applications in detail, emphasizing generality, definitions, and logical consistency.
