  • Aspects of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamicsby W. Muschik

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 59.00

    In six lectures aspects of modern non-equilibrium thermodynamics of discrete systems as well as continuum theoretical concepts are represented. Starting out with survey and introduction, state spaces are defined, the existence of internal energy is investigated, and Clausius inequality including negative absolute temperature is derived by diagram technique.... more...

  • Thermodynamics of Complex Systemsby L. Sertorio

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 99.00

    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$ 135.00

    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$ 43.00

    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...

  • Thermodynamikby Herbert Windisch

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2012; US$ 1,114.00

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Thermodynamikby Rainer Müller

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 839.00

    What is actually happening to that pork cutlet sizzling in the frying pan, or to the cauliflower in the pot? What are the physical and chemical processes that take place during heating? Being able to answer these questions is useful, and not only to improve our cooking. Becoming aware of the physics of cooking inevitably leads us to the... 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...

  • 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...
