- Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 48.00
Introductory textbook for standard undergraduate courses in thermodynamics, covering important quantum behaviours, classical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 132.00
All 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...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00
Provides an introduction to thermodynamics and the concept of entropy and energy. This book gives instructive examples from elementary thermodynamics and physico-chemistry, and extrapolates the notion to non-standard thermodynamic subjects like shape memory, dissipation of the earth's atmosphere, and sociology. more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 99.00
Aims to deduce, from the first principles, the partial differential equations governing the thermodynamic processes undergone by continuum media under forces and heat. This work includes the classical models for linear vibrations of thermoelastic solids and also for wave propagation in fluids. more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 119.00
In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader 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 textbooks of thermodynamics... more...
- McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 165.00
Many newly developing fields of science and engineering, including nanotechnology, protein engineering, microfluidics, etc., require an in-depth molecular understanding and description of matter. Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena: Complexities of Scales in Space and Time provides a rigorous molecular and statistical mechanical basis... more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 129.00
Discusses mathematical models that are based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics. These are intended for the analysis of possible results of diverse natural and production processes. These allow readers to view the achievable set of partial equilibria with regards to constraints on kinetics, energy and mass exchange. more...
Pulver und Schüttgüter: Fließeigenschaften und Handhabung (VDI-Buch / Chemische Technik / Verfahrenstechnik) (German Edition)Springer 2006; US$ 69.95
Das Wissen um die Eigenschaften und das Verhalten von Pulvern und Schüttgütern beim Fließen ist nicht sehr verbreitet. Das Buch schafft hier Abhilfe, indem der Leser mit dem Verhalten von Pulvern und Schüttgütern in verschiedenen Situationen vertraut gemacht wird. Es wendet sich an technische Assistenten, Ingenieure, Pharmazeuten und Chemiker, die... more...
- Springer 2008; US$ 159.00
This book offers a homogeneous presentation of the many faces of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The first part is devoted to a description of the nowadays thermodynamic formalism recognized as the classical theory of non-equilibrium processes. This part of the book may serve as a basis to an introductory course dedicated to first-year graduate students... more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 129.00
Presents calculation method for heat transfer in coupled convective-conductive fluid-wall systems under periodical intensity oscillations in fluid flow. This book demonstrates that the true steady-state mean value of the heat transfer coefficient has to be multiplied by a newly defined coupling factor. more...
