#### 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...

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 128.00Graduate 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...
