Thus, we do not talk about the individual terms here in an axiomatic way. An axiomatic introduction into thermodynamics is, if it is possible at all, quite more difficult to understand. It is unnecessary to say that there are many impressive textbooks in thermodynamics [1–6].Author: Johannes Karl Fink.

Owen. Based on the foundations of thermodynamics and the equilibrium conditions for the coexistence of two phases in a magnetic Ising-like system, we show, first, that there is a critical point where the isothermal susceptibility diverges and the specific heat may remain finite, and second, that near the critical point the entropy of the system, and therefore all free energies, do obey scaling.

Romano, A. (et al.) (). The present theory gives the mathematical foundations of quantum thermodynamics. We show that the basic laws are represented by parameters that specify respective quantum states. The parameters are the elements of the thermodynamic state space Mθ and the state space Mϑ of the mixed ensemble for quantum systems.
