  • A Conceptual Guide to Thermodynamicsby Bill Poirier

    Wiley 2014; US$ 49.50

    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...

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

    Wiley 2014; US$ 65.95

    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 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...

  • 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...

  • Statistical Physicsby Ian Ford

    Wiley 2013; US$ 145.00

    This undergraduate textbook provides a statistical mechanical foundation to the classical laws of thermodynamics via a comprehensive treatment of the basics of classical thermodynamics, equilibrium statistical mechanics, irreversible thermodynamics, and the statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium phenomena. This timely book has a unique focus on... more...

  • Higher Physics for CfEby Paul Chmabers; Mark Ramsay; Ian Moore

    Hodder Education 2013; US$ 33.58

    Higher Physics for CfE provides complete coverage of the latest SQA syllabus for the Revised Higher (for examination 2012 onwards), and is also tailored specifically to the extended requirements, teaching approaches and syllabus outlines detailed in the Higher revisions for Curriculum for Excellence. It will therefore be appropriate for all new Higher... more...

  • Keine Panik vor Thermodynamik!by Dirk Labuhn; Oliver Romberg

    Springer 2013; US$ 29.95

    Der Begleiter durch das klassische „Dickbrettbohrerfach“ des Ingenieurstudiums. Thema des Buches sind die Grundlagen der Thermodynamik, wie sie im ingenieurwissenschaftlichen Grundstudium behandelt werden. Die Thermodynamik, neben Mechanik und Mathematik eine der wichtigsten Grundlagendisziplinen in den Ingenieurwissenschaften, verkörpert... more...
