Five years ago I attempted to talk about a somewhat new approach to thermodynamics at an SMF seminar. This seminar is aimed are presenting ‘round 2’ where hopefully some of the key arguments are clarified. Given thermodynamics is based on the quantum mechanical behaviour of the world, one ends up looking at the fundamental principles of QM for ‘the reason why’, and this seminar proposes a way of approaching the basis of QM that just starts from the notion that there are waves that obey linear superposition and that there is a time development operator.
