  • Thermodynamics of Complex Systemsby L. Sertorio

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 61.00

    This book aims at guiding the reader with continuity from the elements of classical equilibrium thermodynamics to the formal problems of global non equilibrium thermodynamics necessary to describe an “active system” such is a thermodynamic ecosystem. To this purpose, the brief review of equilibrium thermodynamics emphasizes the concepts... more...

  • A Farewell to Entropyby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 38.00

    The principal message of this book is that thermodynamics and statistical mechanics will benefit from replacing the unfortunate, misleading and mysterious term “entropy” with a more familiar, meaningful and appropriate term such as information, missing information or uncertainty. This replacement would facilitate the interpretation of... more...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 26.00

    In this unique book, the reader is invited to experience the joy of appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years — entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the second law is not infinitely incomprehensible as commonly stated in most textbooks on thermodynamics, but... more...

  • Chemische Thermodynamikby Hermann Weingärtner

    Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2013; US$ 44.99

    Die Thermodynamik wurde im 19. Jahrhundert zur Beschreibung von Prozessen in Wärme­ kraftmaschinen entwickelt. In weiterer Folge wurde klar, daß die thermodynamischen Prin­ zipien auch die Beschreibung der Gleichgewichtszustände der Stoffe sowie der Phasen-und Reaktionsgleichgewichte ermöglichen. Diese Erweiterung stellte einen wesentlichen Schritt... more...

  • Thermodynamikby Herbert Windisch

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 56.00

    Das Buch bietet eine umfassende Einführung in die phänomenologische Thermodynamik für Ingenieure. Ausgehend von der Darstellung grundlegender Konzepte und Begriffe wie System, Zustand und Prozess werden die Hauptsätze der Thermodynamik formuliert und anhand modellhafter Beispiele in ihren Konsequenzen erläutert. Großen Raum nehmen die darauf aufbauenden... more...

  • Friction-Induced Vibrations and Self-Organizationby Michael Nosonovsky; Vahid Mortazavi

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 219.95

    Many scientists and engineers do not realize that, under certain conditions, friction can lead to the formation of new structures at the interface, including in situ tribofilms and various patterns. In turn, these structures?usually formed by destabilization of the stationary sliding regime?can lead to the reduction of friction and wear. Friction-Induced... more...

  • Technische Thermodynamikby Erich Hahne

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 77.00

    Dieses Werk hilft angehenden Ingenieuren im Grundstudium, sich den oft schwer verständlichen Stoff der Thermodynamik anzueignen und Lücken zu schließen, die in den Vorlesungen aus Zeitmangel gelassen wurden. Neben einer präzisen mathematisch-physikalischen Darstellung der Grundlagen nehmen Beispiele aus der Praxis großen Raum ein. Insbesondere die... more...

  • Handbook of Differential Entropyby Joseph Victor Michalowicz; Jonathan M. Nichols; Frank Bucholtz

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 97.95

    One of the main issues in communications theory is measuring the ultimate data compression possible using the concept of entropy. While differential entropy may seem to be a simple extension of the discrete case, it is a more complex measure that often requires a more careful treatment. Handbook of Differential Entropy provides a comprehensive... more...

  • Non-equilibrium thermodynamics and physical kineticsby Halid Bikkin; Igor I. Lyapilin

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 84.00

    This graduate textbook covers contemporary directions of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics as well as classical methods of kinetics. With one of the main propositions being to avoid terms such as "obviously" and "it is easy to show", this treatise is an easy-to-read introduction into this traditional, yet vibrant field. more...

  • General Thermodynamicsby Donald Olander

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 121.95

    Because classical thermodynamics evolved into many branches of science and engineering, most undergraduate courses on the subject are taught from the perspective of each area of specialization. General Thermodynamics combines elements from mechanical and chemical engineering, chemistry (including electrochemistry), materials science, and biology... more...
