The laws of thermodynamics drive everything that happens in the universe. From the expansion of a cloud of gas to the cooling of hot metal, and from the unfurling of a leaf to the course of life itself - everything is directed and constrained by four simple laws. Peter Atkins' powerful introduction explains what the laws are and how they work.... more...

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...

This book places thermodynamics on a system-theoretic foundation so as to harmonize it with classical mechanics. Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical thermodynamics. This middle-ground theory involves... more...

Mass transfer phenomena can now be observed in many fields of industry. In particular, separation processes, which make up the vast majority of industrial production procedures, are governed by the physics of mass transfer, and their design and optimization depends heavily on knowledge in this field. This didactic approach to the principles and modeling... more...

Imparts the similarities and differences between ratified and condensed matter, classical and quantum systems as well as real and ideal gases. Presents the quasi-thermodynamic theory of gas-liquid interface and its application for density profile calculation within the van der Waals theory of surface tension. Uses inductive logic to lead readers from... more...
