N2 - We show that three independent derivations of the Shuttleworth equation, arguably the second most important equation in surface physics, are inconsistent with Hermann’s mathematical structure of thermodynamics [R. Hermann, Geometry, Physics and Systems, Marcel Dekker Inc., New York, USA, 1973 (Chapter 6)]. The possible implications of this result are discussed.
