Abstract: The socio-thermodynamics of a population of two competing species exhibits strong analogies with the thermodynamics of solutions and alloys of two constituents. In particular we may construct strategy diagrams akin to the phase diagrams of chemical thermodynamics, complete with regions of homogeneous mixing and miscibility gaps.
Keywords: thermodynamics; sociology
