Abstract

This study is intended to give a brief overview of some of the mathematical concepts and techniques relevant to the study of thermodynamics, including the theory of homogeneous functions and partly homogeneous functions, Euler’s theorem, and Legendre transformation. The basic thermodynamic functions of an ideal monatomic gas (fundamental relations and thermodynamic potential functions) have been selected as illustrative examples.
