  • An Introduction to Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanicsby Keith Stowe

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 56.00

    Introductory textbook for standard undergraduate courses in thermodynamics, covering important quantum behaviours, classical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. more...

  • The Physical Foundation Of Economicsby Jing Chen

    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...

  • Fundamentals of Equilibrium and Steady-State Thermodynamicsby N.W. Tschoegl

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 305.00

    This 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...

  • Continuum Thermomechanicsby Alfredo Bermúdez de Castro

    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...

  • Entropy and Energyby Ingo Müller; Wolf Weiss

    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...

  • Challenges to The Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Vladislav Capek; Daniel Sheehan

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 269.00

    The 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...

  • Nonequilibrium Thermodynamicsby Yasar Demirel

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 275.00

    Natural phenomena consist of simultaneously occurring transport processes and chemical reactions. These processes may interact with each other and lead to instabilities, fluctuations, and evolutionary systems. This book explores the unifying role of thermodynamics in natural phenomena. Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics, Second Edition analyzes the transport... more...

  • Microscale Heat Transfer - Fundamentals and Applicationsby S. Kakaç; L.L. Vasiliev; Y. Bayazitoglu; Y. Yener

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 179.00

    This volume contains an archival record of the NATO Advanced Institute on Microscale Heat Transfer ? Fundamental and Applications in Biological and Microelectromechanical Systems held in Çesme ? Izmir, Turkey, July 18?30, 2004. The ASIs are intended to be high-level teaching activity in scientific and technical areas of current concern. In this volume,... more...

  • Transport Phenomena in Plasmaby James P. Hartnett ?; Alexander Fridman; Young I. Cho; George A. Greene; Avram Bar-Cohen

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 230.00

    Advances in Heat Transfer fills the information gap between regularly scheduled journals and university-level textbooks by providing wide-ranging and in-depth review articles. Put simply, this book is essential reading for all mechanical, chemical and industrial engineers working in the field of heat transfer in graduate schools or industry. The... more...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    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...
