#### The Physical Foundation Of Economics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 82.00 US$ 74.62All human activities, including mental activities, are governed by physical laws and are essentially thermodynamic processes. However, current economic theories are not established on these foundations. This pioneering book seeks to develop an analytical theory of economics on the foundation of thermodynamic laws. A unified understanding of economic... more...

#### Challenges to The Second Law of Thermodynamics

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 180.45The second law of thermodynamics is considered one of the central laws of science, engineering and technology. For over a century it has been assumed to be inviolable by the scientific community. Over the last 10-20 years, however, more than two dozen challenges to it have appeared in the physical literature - more than during any other period in its... more...

#### Fundamentals of Equilibrium and Steady-State Thermodynamics

Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 305.00This 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...
