A cyclic process for which neither 풯+ nor 풯 is empty is a Carnot process if there are constant temperatures θ+ and θ, called the operating temperatures of the process, such that
$$\begin{array}{*{20}c} {\theta = \theta ^ + onTscr^ + ,} \\ {\theta = \theta ^ - < \theta ^ + onTscr^ - } \\ \end{array} $$
