The basic features of thermodynamics
Review article, 2021

More than 100 years ago a Swedish schoolteacher Nils Engelbrektsson could theoretically derive the thermodynamic equation of state, which is universally valid. His colleague, a Swedish schoolteacher Karl Franzén had experimentally verified his inferences and could prove their validity. About hundred years of fierce struggle to persuade the colleagues do finally bring the desiderated victory to Nils and Karl: their trains of thoughts do deserve our careful looking at them. That is just the main idea behind the translation at hand
