#### Metastable Solids from Undercooled Melts

Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 255.00This book presents the physical concepts and tools to characterize and describe the formation of metastable solids from undercooled melts. Its aim is to facilitate understanding of the development of the science and technology of solidification of melts and to introduce new concepts within this exciting research field in order to fulfil the challenges... more...

#### An Introduction to Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 48.00Introductory textbook for standard undergraduate courses in thermodynamics, covering important quantum behaviours, classical thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. more...

#### The Physical Foundation Of Economics

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 132.00All 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 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...

#### Entropy and Energy

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00Provides 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...

#### Continuum Thermomechanics

Springer 2006; US$ 99.00Aims 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 Demystified

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 119.00In 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...

#### Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics

Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 275.00Natural 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...
