**A New Perspective on Thermodynamics ** written by
** Bernard H Lavenda **.

This book introduces a new outlook on thermodynamics. It brings the theory up to the present time and indicates areas of further development with the union of information theory and the theory of means and their inequalities.

More than to any other single individual, thermodynamics owes its creation to Nicolas-L´eonard-Sadi Carnot. Sadi, the son of the “great Carnot” Lazare, was heavily influenced by his father. Not only was LazareMinister ofWar during Napoleon’s consulate, he was a respected mathematician and engineer in his own right. Mathematically, Lazare can lay claim to the definition of the cross ratio, a projective invariant of four points. Lazare was also interested in how machines operated, emphasizing the roles of work and “vis viva,” or living force, which was later to be associated with the kinetic energy. He arrived at a dynamical theory that machines in order to operate at maximum efficiency should avoid “any impact or sudden change.” This was the heritage he left to his son Sadi.

The mechanics of Newton, in his Principia, was more than a century old. It dealt with the mechanics of conservative systems in which there was no room for processes involving heat and friction. Such processes would ruin the time reversibility of mechanical laws, which could no longer be derived by minimizing the difference between kinetic and potential energies.When Sadi wrote his only scientific work in 1824, there were no laws governing the mechanical effects of heat. In fact, caloric theory was still in vogue, which treated heat as an imponderable fluid that was conserved. Although this interpretation led naturally to the interpretation of latent and specific heats, it was at a loss to account for phenomena related to the transport of heat, like that which occurs in steam engines.

**About Author :- **

The author **Bernard Howard Lavenda **(born 1945) is a retired professor of chemical physics at the University of Camerino and expert on irreversible thermodynamics. He has contributed to many areas of physics, including that of Brownian motion, and in the establishment of the statistical basis of thermodynamics, and non-Euclidean geometrical theories of relativity. He was the scientific coordinator of the "European Thermodynamics Network" in the European Commission Program of Human Capital and Mobility. He was also a proponent for the establishment of, and scientific director of, a National (Italian) Centre for Thermodynamics, and has acted as scientific consultant to companies such as the ENI Group, where he helped to found TEMA, a consulting firm for SNAM Progetti, ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment), and the Solar Energy Research Institute in Golden, Colorado. He has had over 130 scientific papers published in international journals, some critical of the new fashions and modes in theoretical physics.

Professor Lavenda currently lives in Trevignano Romano near Rome, is married with two adult children and two grandchildren, for whom his textbook "A New Perspective on Thermodynamics" is dedicated.
