Description

This textbook aims to briefly outline the main directions in which the

geometrization of thermodynamics has been developed in the last decades.

The textbook is accessible to people trained in thermal sciences but not

necessarily with solid formation in mathematics. For this, in the first chapters

a summary of the main mathematical concepts is made. In some sense,

this makes the textbook self-consistent. The rest of the textbook consists of

a collection of results previously obtained in this young branch of thermodynamics.

The manner of presentation used throughout the textbook is

adapted for ease of access of readers with education in natural and technical

sciences.



Outlines the main development directions of the geometrization of thermodynamics in the last decades

Self-consistent book including in its first part a summary of the main mathematical concepts and tools

The second part of the book refers to the application of geometric methods in equilibrium thermodynamics
