A paper titled “Reproducing Carnot Engines Operating Across Inexhaustible Heat Reservoirs” has been posted to the HeatSuite Journal.
A Carnot engine operates across a thermal potential to produce work. This work is utilized to build additional Carnot engines, thus generating growth in consumption and production, similar in form to exponential growth. The impact of engine build cost upon growth is explored. A simulator in the Ruby programming language is discussed.
