Abstract:

Quantum thermodynamics is introduced through a quantized relativistic trace equation. This equation describes the discrete and continuous spectra and eigenfunctions of macroscopic thermodynamic systems. For solids and quantum liquids this is equivalent to a set of coupled eigenvalue equations for the internal energy and Gruneisen parameter. Simultaneous eigenvalue equations are developed for internal energy, time, time dimension and space dimension. These equations determine the effects of real state equations on the rates and geometrical structures of physical processes such as chemical and nuclear reactions which occur in bulk matter. High-Tc superconductivity is suggested to be associated with the coherent spacetime state of electrons in Cooper pairs. A quantized relativistic thermodynamic trace equation for coherent spacetime is developed, and this equation in conjunction with the quantized coherent time, time dimension and space dimension equations are suggested to describe high-Tc superconductivity. The first order macroscopic quantum eigenvalue equations for time, time dimension and space dimension are the bulk matter equivalents of the Dirac equation which describes microscopic systems. The eigenvalue equations for time, time dimension and space dimension are solved and yield solutions that predict structured energy and pressure.
