Abhijit PanditIn existographies, Abhijit Pandit (c.1975-) is an Indian hmolscientist, philanthropist, research, and academician; noted for []

Overview
In 2017, Pandit, in his Human and Social Thermodynamics, a 56-page booklet, attempted to discuss the following:

“This book is based on interdisciplinary subjects of thermodynamics, social sciences and management. Human and social thermodynamics is a very recent and interesting subject which is becoming popular worldwide. Needless to mention, the concepts of this subject, if properly implemented, can provide solutions to several problems of management, personal life of people and society. This book is written, keeping in mind that it can do some value-addition and enrichment in the lives of any type of reader like students, teachers, casual-readers, researchers and others.”

The key words of this are: enthalpy, entropy, Gibbs free energy, love, society, thermodynamics, and human molecule. Pandit’s book, in sum, has an opening chapter on what he calls “phase space”, which is code for thermodynamic system, followed by three JHT article copy-pastes, firstly: Gerard Nahum’s 2010 “A Proposal for Testing the Energetics of Consciousness and its Physical Foundation”; secondly: Vamshi Regalla and Ravi Vedula’s 2012 “A Strange Thing Called Love: in View of Thermodynamics”; and thirdly: Jeff Tuhtan’s “On the Differences Between a Person and a Particle”. [2]

In 2019, Pandit, in his Human Thermodynamics and its Emerging Research Opportunities and Anthropological Applications: Application of Human Thermodynamics in Real Life, a 108-page booklet, attempted to further summarize ideas on human thermodynamics; the abstract is as follows: [3]

“Human thermodynamics is the study of the energy and entropy aspects of the work cycles involved in human life, namely those existent between heat, spontaneity, irreversibility and the laws defining therein. In short, human thermodynamics is the study of heat and its relation to the motion and changes in the equilibriums of human bodies. The essential process of thermodynamics is that whereby heat cycles through a system of chemical species, e.g. water molecules in a steam engine or human molecules in a social system (sociological thermodynamics) and thereby mediates the production of work In simple terms, heat, in the form of gamma-ray photons, cycles from the sun, the systems are coupled economies, the chemical species are people, and the work is the work of life. The four laws of thermodynamics define the boundaries of this action.”

Education

Pandit completed his BS, MS, and PhD at the University of Calcutta; thereby, accordingly, he is likely associated with the Indian school of econophysics. [1]
