In 1946, Lisman, in his book Econometrics, Statistics, and Thermodynamics, presented a compilation of various previously published articles.

In 1949, Lisman, in his “Econometrics and Thermodynamics: A Remark on Davis’ Theory of Budgets”, in which he picks apart the economic equations, via the employment of the thermodynamic isomorphisms (or mathematical isomorphism) technique, of American mathematician Harold Davis, concluding that none of the variables Davis used in his mathematical economic models seem to play the same role as entropy in thermodynamics.

Lisman seems to have co-authored the 1931 article “The melting-curve of hydrogen to 450 kg/cm2”. [2]
