4. Basic concepts of materials thermodynamics

Aim: To go over and re-examine at a higher level and with a more materials- oriented approach the fundamentals of thermodynamics.

Topic description and teaching suggestions: One of the areas that is most important for high- temperature materials chemistry is thermodynamics. A sound knowledge of theoretical and experimental aspects of thermodynamics is imperative to understand the
