A System Theoretic Foundation for Thermodynamics Energy Flow, Energy Balance, Energy Equipartition, Entropy, and Ectropy

We develop a system-theoretic foundation for thermodynamics using a large-scale dynamical systems perspective. Specifically, using compartmental dynamical system energy flow models, we place the universal energy conservation, energy equipartition, temperature equipartition, and entropy nonconservati...
