(If any tax is payable it will be calculated and shown at checkout.)

Combines for the first time theories of general physics and applies them to social sciences

Offers a new way to look at social phenomena as part of natural phenomena

A new domain of application of engineering such as thermodynamic optimization, thermoeconomics and "design as science"

Discusses how the "flow architectures" of natural sciences are also found in social situations

Both classes are covered by the same principle (the constructal law)

First work to show that the concept of "efficiency" of engineering has a home in physics and social sciences

The constructal law theory puts a scientific principle behind the major challenges of today and the future: sustainable development, energy sufficiency, equilibria between human settlements and environmental ecosystems, optimal allocation, optimal distribution of finite resources, etc.
