This course is about the fundamental theoretical structure of
thermodynamics and (part of)
equilibrium statistical mechanics, and is intended to
help the advanced student develop his or her intuition
about them. The emphasis is therefore on the underlying
general principles of each, rather than on the manipulation of
equations. The student will be expected to be already familiar with
undergraduate thermodynamics and statistical mechanics at the level
of Chemistry 130A or 131A.
