#### Convective Heat Transfer

Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 285.00Interest in studying the phenomena of convective heat and mass transfer between an ambient fluid and a body which is immersed in it stems both from fundamental considerations, such as the development of better insights into the nature of the underlying physical processes which take place, and from practical considerations, such as the fact that these... more...

#### Understanding Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics

Springer 2008; US$ 159.00This 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...

#### Theory of Periodic Conjugate Heat Transfer

Springer 2007; US$ 129.00Presents 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...

#### Heat Conduction

Springer 2007; US$ 179.00Many phenomena in social, natural and engineering fields are governed by wave, potential, parabolic heat-conduction, hyperbolic heat-conduction and dual-phase-lagging heat-conduction equations. These equations are not only appropriate for describing heat conduction at various scales, but also the most important mathematical equations in physics. The... more...

#### Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquids

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 36.00Graduate-level book on the analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. more...

#### Thermodynamics and Fluctuations far from Equilibrium

Springer 2008; US$ 219.00This book deals with the formulation of the thermodynamics of chemical and other systems far from equilibrium, including connections to fluctuations. It contains applications to non-equilibrium stationary states and approaches to such states, systems with multiple stationary states, stability and equi-stability conditions, reaction diffusion systems,... more...

#### Irreversible Phenomena in Ignitions, Combustion and Detonation Waves

Springer 2007; US$ 269.00This book is focused on the latter applications and offers a rather unique viewpoint in comparison with the existing combustion literature. the central argument of the book and the subsequent applications are clearly laid out and discussed, resulting in a very interesting read. The book provides valuable access to numerous experimental and theoretical... more...

#### Four Laws That Drive the Universe

Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 18.99The 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...
