  • The Notion of Activity in Chemistryby Jean-Louis Burgot

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 137.44

    This book provides deep insight into the physical quantity known as chemical activity. The author probes deep into classical thermodynamics in Part I, and then into statistical thermodynamics in Part II, to provide the necessary background. The treatment has been streamlined by placing some background material in appendices. Chemical... more...

  • An Introduction to Complex Systemsby Paul Fieguth

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 45.45

    This undergraduate text explores a variety of large-scale phenomena - global warming, ice ages, water, poverty - and uses these case studies as a motivation to explore nonlinear dynamics, power-law statistics, and complex systems. Although the detailed mathematical descriptions of these topics can be challenging, the consequences of a system being... more...

  • Classical Thermodynamics of Fluid Systemsby Juan H. Vera; Grazyna Wilczek-Vera

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 159.95

    This text explores the connections between different thermodynamic subjects related to fluid systems. Emphasis is placed on the clarification of concepts by returning to the conceptual foundation of thermodynamics and special effort is directed to the use of a simple nomenclature and algebra. The book presents the structural elements of classical... more...

  • Tunnel Fire Testing and Modelingby Fabio Borghetti; Marco Derudi; Paolo Gandini; Alessio Frassoldati; Silvia Tavelli

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 45.45

    This book aims to cast light on all aspects of tunnel fires, based on experimental activities and theoretical and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analyses. In particular, the authors describe a transient full-scale fire test (~15 MW), explaining how they designed and performed the experimental activity inside the Morgex North tunnel in Italy. The... more...
