This approach rules out the embarrassing feature of usual treatments in which only equilibrium is admitted as a meaningful state, but the most important assertions (first law and second law) presuppose changes of states i.e. nonequilibrium processes. Now the process becomes the fundamental notion, the process as a function in time, governed by a dynamical equation. A mathematically exact treatise is expounded after the heuristic explanation of the notions. A large number of special systems are examined. The applied mathematics is simple: the fundamental results of analysis and ordinary differential equations and Ljapunovs stability theory are used only.
