Most math-intensive thermodynamics text?

  1. Mar 15, 2013 #1
    I'm (again) tired of being given formulas that seem to come from nowhere in the book I'm currently using (Moran/Shapiro). Is there a more math-intensive basic thermodynamics text out there that actually handles things like derivations of specific heats from partial differential equations? It's rather annoying to read endless formulas and wonder where they're coming from.

    If you would just like a thermodynamics text that motivates for you where formulas come from, I recommend Schroeder Thermal Physics.
