The introductive part is devoted to the recapitulation of the thermodynamic systems and thermodynamic properties of ideal and real gases. Next chapters are devoted to the first, second and third law of thermodynamics and their applications. Last but not least, attention is devoted also to the thermodynamic, phase and chemical equilibriums as well as to the elementals of nonequilibrium thermodynamics.
