80: Classical thermodynamics, heat transfer


Classical thermodynamics, heat transfer: study of the flow of heat through matter, including phase change and combustion. Historically, the source of Fourier series.


Applications and related fields

For thermodynamics of solids, See 73B30. [Schematic of subareas and related areas]


There is only one division (80A) but it is subdivided:

This is among the smaller areas in the Math Reviews database.

Starting in the year 2000 the material will be collected into two subareas, 80A: Thermodynamics and heat transfer, and 80M: Basic methods .
