Chapter 1: Getting Started: Introductory Concepts and Definitions Thermodynamics ¾ " Thermodynamics is the only physical theory of universal content which, within the framework of the applicability of its basic concepts, I am convinced will never be overthrown." Albert Einstein

Chapter 1: Getting Started: Introductory Concepts and Definitions Thermodynamics ¾ "Thermodynamics is a funny subject. The first time you go through it, you don't understand it at all. The second time you go through it, you think you understand it, except for one or two small points. The third time you go through it, you know you don't understand it, but by then you are so used to it, it doesn't bother you any more." ¾ (Arnold Sommerfield is a prominent mathematical physicist. Technical University of Clausthal-Zellerfeld, West Germany, named an institute after him to honor his contributions to science and technology: Arnold-Sommerfield-Institute for Mathematical Physics)
