- Oxford Book Co. 2008; US$ 50.00
The comprehension of the laws which govern any material system is greatly facilitated by considering the energy and entropy of the system in various states of which it is capable. As in the case of simply mechanics systems, the performance of mechanical work, the function which expresses the capability of the system for this kind of action also plays... more...

Temperature is vital to the health and welfare of all living beings, and Earth's temperature varies considerably from place to place. Early humans could only live in warm areas such as the tropics. Although modern humans have the technology to keep their houses and offices warm even in cold environments, the growth and development of civilization... more...
- Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 85.00
This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...

Maximum Dissipation: Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics and its Geometric Structure explores the thermodynamics of non-equilibrium processes in materials. The book develops a general technique created in order to construct nonlinear evolution equations describing non-equilibrium processes, while also developing a geometric context for non-equilibrium thermodynamics.... more...
- Springer 2010; US$ 149.00
This is the second edition of the book "Thermodynamics of Fluids under Flow," which was published in 2000 and has now been corrected, expanded and updated. This is a companion book to our other title Extended irreversible thermodynamics (D. Jou, J. Casas-Vazquez and G. Lebon, Springer, 4th edition 2010), and of the textbook Understanding... more...

Research and development of computational methods for solving and understanding heat transfer problems continue to be important because heat transfer topics are commonly of a complex nature and different mechanisms such as heat conduction, convection, turbulence, thermal radiation and phase change may occur simultaneously. Typically, applications are... more...

Temperature and heat, entropy and order or disorder are key classical concepts of physics. These are challenged by searching matter under extreme conditions, such as high (relativistic) energy, strong acceleration or gravitation, or unusual complexity due to long range correlations. In our quest for quark matter all these conditions might occur simultaneously.... more...

This book is based on the premise that the entropy concept, a fundamental element of probability theory as logic, governs all of thermal physics, both equilibrium and nonequilibrium. The variational algorithm of J. Willard Gibbs, dating from the 19th Century and extended considerably over the following 100 years, is shown to be the governing feature... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 77.00
This is a sequel to the author's book entitled "Entropy Demystified". The aim is essentially the same as that of the previous book by the author: to present Entropy and the Second Law as simple, meaningful and comprehensible concepts. In addition, this book presents a series of experiments which are designed to help the reader discover... more...

Have you ever had a question that keeps persisting and for which you cannot find a clear answer? Is the question seemingly so ?simple? that the problem is glossed over in most resources, or skipped entirely? CRC Press/Taylor and Francis is pleased to introduce Commonly Asked Questions in Thermodynamics , the first in a new series of books that... more...
