The 1st NATO technological know-how discussion board used to be held in Biarritz in September 1990. This Taormina convention is the second one in a sequence that we want to be an extended one and that i think that it has equalled the luck of its predecessor. In constructing those conferences the NATO technology Committee desired to assemble major specialists to check fields of robust current curiosity.

Murphy, Mathematics of Physics and Chemistry, Van Nostrand, Princeton, NJ, 1943, pp. 8 –11. CHAPTER 3 THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS Now that we have summarized the historical and mathematical background, the objectives, and the limitations of chemical thermodynamics, we will develop the basic postulates upon which its analytic framework is built.

3 It also should be pointed out that the very definition of the energy concept precludes the possibility of determining absolute values thermodynamically; that is, we have defined only a method of measuring changes in internal energy. In this regard, a significant difference exists between the character of the thermodynamic property energy and that of a property such as volume.
