In Section 1.1 we presented the fundamental expression for the chemical potential (CP) and discussed some of its features. This expression constitutes the cornerstone of the entire book. In this section we present a detailed derivation of this expression using three different ensembles or sets of independent variables: T, V, N; T, P, N; and T, V, μ.
