thermodynamics

the science concerned with the relationships between heat and mechanical work. The laws of thermodynamics are:(1st) when one form of energy is converted to another there is no loss or gain.(2nd) when one form of energy is converted to another a proportion is turned into heat.

These calculations are challenging due to the high nonlinearity of thermodynamic models used to describe the equilibrium phases, the potential nonconvexity of the thermodynamic functions used as objective, and the presence of trivial solutions in the feasible search space.
