Nor are they the ones I learned in graduate chemical thermodynamics courses.
The sad thing is that according to his CV, he has an MS in Mechanical Engineering, in addition to his 5 years earlier PhD in Math. (that'a mite odd, but not unheard of)ME is the very department where Engineering Thermo (and Fluids) is usually taught. Have to wonder if they made him take the undergrade course for his M.S.?
Even though the paper indicates he's in the Math Department of A&M, you'll notice that the link takes you to UTEP (U. Texas El Paso), where he's been since '83. He has been or was Visiting Prof at A&M '04-'06. ( a mite unusual, "visiting" is generally for a single year or even semester).
Beat me to it!
