  • Technische Thermodynamikby Erich Hahne

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2011; US$ 1,046.00

    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. more...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 199.95

    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...

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

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 79.95

    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...

  • Microcanonical Thermodynamicsby Dieter H. E. Gross

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 163.00

    Boltzmann's formula S = In[ W (E) ] defines the microcanonical ensemble. The usual textbooks on statistical mechanics start with the microensemble but rather quickly switch to the canonical ensemble introduced by Gibbs. This has the main advantage of easier analytical calculations, but there is a price to pay — for example, phase transitions... more...

  • Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanicsby Phil Attard

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 205.00

    Description This account of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics is based on entropy and its maximization. Building from first principles, it gives a transparent explanation of the physical behaviour of equilibrium thermodynamic systems, and it presents a comprehensive, self-contained account of the modern mathematical and computational techniques... more...

  • Fundamentals of Equilibrium and Steady-State Thermodynamicsby N.W. Tschoegl

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 305.00

    This book summarizes the salient features of both equilibrium and steady-state thermodynamic theory under a uniform postulatory viewpoint. The emphasis is upon the formal aspects and logical structure of thermodynamic theory, allowing it to emerge as a coherent whole, unfettered by much of those details which - albeit indispensable in practical applications... more...

  • The Second Law of Lifeby John E.J. Schmitz

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 84.95

    In this compelling, and important book, John Schmitz brings order to the world of chaos that surrounds us. The Second Law of Life refers to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy, which is an omnipresent force that quietly and crucially determines every aspect of our society, culture and daily lives. Unless we come to understand entropy, future... more...

  • Thermal Physicsby Ralph Baierlein

    Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 84.00

    This textbook provides a clear, instructive and highly readable introduction to thermal physics. more...

  • Irreversibility and Dissipation in Microscopic Systemsby Édgar Roldán

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    After an insightful introductory part on recent developments in the thermodynamics of small systems, the author presents his contribution to a long-standing problem, namely the connection between irreversibility and dissipation. He develops a method based on recent results on fluctuation theorems that is able to estimate dissipation using only information... more...
