Relativistic thermodynamics

In thermodynamics, relativistic thermodynamics is the study of the implications of the theory of relativity, e.g. that there is a limit to the speeds of particles, that hot bodies weigh more than cold bodies, etc., in thermodynamics. [1] American engineer Richard Weiss seems to done some of the first publications on this subject. [2]
