PHY 3513 Thermal Physics
This is a first course in thermal physics. It covers most of the major topics
in classical equilibrium thermodynamics, including thermodynamic variables, the
postulates of equilibrium thermodynamics, the fundamental equation and
equations of state, heat capacities and generalized susceptibilities,
thermodynamic cycles, thermodynamic potentials, Maxwell relations, stability,
and phase transitions.
PHY 3513 is primarily taken by students who have completed the
Physics-with-Calculus sequence (PHY 2048-49).
