  • Modern Thermodynamicsby Dilip Kondepudi; Ilya Prigogine

    Wiley 2014; US$ 82.50

    Modern Thermodynamics: From Heat Engines to Dissipative Structures, Second Edition presents a comprehensive introduction to 20th century thermodynamics that can be applied to both equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems, unifying what was traditionally divided into ‘thermodynamics’ and ‘kinetics’ into one theory of irreversible... more...

  • Flows and Chemical Reactions in Heterogeneous Mixturesby Roger Prud'homme

    Wiley 2014; US$ 105.00

    This book - a sequel of previous publications 'Flows and Chemical Reactions' and 'Chemical Reactions in Flows and Homogeneous Mixtures' - is devoted to flows with chemical reactions in heterogeneous environments.  Heterogeneous media in this volume include interfaces and lines. They may be the site of radiation. Each type of flow is the subject... more...

  • Entropyby Andreas Greven; Gerhard Keller; Gerald Warnecke

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 110.00

    The concept of entropy arose in the physical sciences during the nineteenth century, particularly in thermodynamics and statistical physics, as a measure of the equilibria and evolution of thermodynamic systems. Two main views developed: the macroscopic view formulated originally by Carnot, Clausius, Gibbs, Planck, and Caratheodory and the microscopic... more...

  • A Conceptual Guide to Thermodynamicsby Bill Poirier

    Wiley 2014; US$ 50.00

    Thermodynamics is the science that describes the behavior of matter at the macroscopic scale, and how this arises from individual molecules. As such, it is a subject of profound practical and fundamental importance to many science and engineering fields. Despite extremely varied applications ranging from nanomotors to cosmology, the core concepts... 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...

  • Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanicsby Robert J. Hardy; Christian Binek

    Wiley 2014; US$ 165.00

    This textbook brings together the fundamentals of the macroscopic and microscopic aspects of thermal physics by presenting thermodynamics and statistical mechanics as complementary theories based on small numbers of postulates. The book is designed to give the instructor flexibility in structuring courses for advanced undergraduates and/or beginning... more...

  • Aufgaben zur Thermodynamikby Frank-Michael Barth

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2014; US$ 420.00

    These sample questions are designed to accompany the textbook ?Thermodynamics for Mechanical Engineers.? The work develops a general, formal, and universal problem-solving strategy for approaching the sample exercises, which are presented in lucid and easily comprehensible fashion. more...

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

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 1,260.00

    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...

  • 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 actual aim... 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...
