Toward formal analysis of thermodynamic stability: Le Chatelier—Brown principle
In this contribution, we carry on with the research program initiated in J. Math. Chem., 58(6), 2020. Using the methods from geometric thermodynamics, we formally derive and analyze different conditions for thermodynamic stability and determine the limits of their use. In particular, we study, in detail, several versions of the Le Chatelier—Brown principle and demonstrate their application to the analysis of thermodynamic stability.
