  • Macro- to Microscale Heat Transferby D. Y. Tzou

    Wiley 2014; US$ 146.95

    Physical processes taking place in micro/nanoscale strongly depend on the material types and can be very complicated. Known approaches include kinetic theory and quantum mechanics, non-equilibrium and irreversible thermodynamics, molecular dynamics, and/or fractal theory and fraction model. Due to innately different physical bases employed, different... more...

  • Entropyby Andreas Greven; Gerhard Keller; Gerald Warnecke

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 110.00

    The concept of entropy arose in the physical sciences during the nineteenth century, particularly in thermodynamics and statistical physics, as a measure of the equilibria and evolution of thermodynamic systems. Two main views developed: the macroscopic view formulated originally by Carnot, Clausius, Gibbs, Planck, and Caratheodory and the microscopic... more...

  • Cambridge IGCSE Physicsby Heather Kennett; Tom Duncan; Nina Konrad

  • A Conceptual Guide to Thermodynamicsby Bill Poirier

    Wiley 2014; US$ 49.50

    Thermodynamics is the science that describes the behavior of matter at the macroscopic scale, and how this arises from individual molecules. As such, it is a subject of profound practical and fundamental importance to many science and engineering fields. Despite extremely varied applications ranging from nanomotors to cosmology, the core concepts... more...

  • Essentials of Radiation Heat Transferby Balaji

    Wiley 2014; US$ 99.95

    Essentials of Radiation Heat Transfer is a textbook presenting the essential, fundamental information required to gain an understanding of radiation heat transfer and equips the reader with enough knowledge to be able to tackle more challenging problems. All concepts are reinforced by carefully chosen and fully worked examples, and exercise problems... more...

  • Thermal Properties of Solids at Room and Cryogenic Temperaturesby Guglielmo Ventura; Mauro Perfetti

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    The minimum temperature in the natural universe is 2.7 K. Laboratory refrigerators can reach temperatures in the microkelvin range. Modern industrial refrigerators cool foods at 200 K, whereas space mission payloads must be capable of working at temperatures as low as 20 K. Superconducting magnets used for NMR work at 4.2 K.Hence the properties of... more...

  • Irreversibility and Dissipation in Microscopic Systemsby Édgar Roldán

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    After an insightful introductory part on recent developments in the thermodynamics of small systems, the author presents his contribution to a long-standing problem, namely the connection between irreversibility and dissipation. He develops a method based on recent results on fluctuation theorems that is able to estimate dissipation using only information... more...

  • Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanicsby Robert J. Hardy; Christian Binek

    Wiley 2014; US$ 165.50

    This textbook brings together the fundamentals of the macroscopic and microscopic aspects of thermal physics by presenting thermodynamics and statistical mechanics as complementary theories based on small numbers of postulates. The book is designed to give the instructor flexibility in structuring courses for advanced undergraduates and/or beginning... more...
