Entropy

Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • Free Energy Computationsby Tony Lelievre; Gabriel Stoltz; Mathias Rousset

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 171.00

    This monograph provides a general introduction to advanced computational methods for free energy calculations, from the systematic and rigorous point of view of applied mathematics. Free energy calculations in molecular dynamics have become an outstanding and increasingly broad computational field in physics, chemistry and molecular biology within... more...

  • Entropy for Biologistsby Harold Morowitz

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Entropy for Biologists: An Introduction to Thermodynamics provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of thermodynamics for biologists. It begins with discussions of basic principles such as temperature, energy, kinetic theory, total energy, the second law of thermodynamics, and entropy. It then reviews conceptual tools from probability theory,... more...

  • Beyond Equilibrium Thermodynamicsby Hans Christian Ošttinger

    Wiley 2005; US$ 168.00

    Beyond Equilibrium Thermodynamics fills a niche in the market by providing a comprehensive introduction to a new, emerging topic in the field. The importance of non-equilibrium thermodynamics is addressed in order to fully understand how a system works, whether it is in a biological system like the brain or a system that develops plastic. In order... more...

  • Nonequilibrium Thermodynamicsby Yasar Demirel

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 275.00

    Natural 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...

  • Understanding Non-equilibrium Thermodynamicsby David Jou; Jose Casas-Vazquez; Georgy Lebon

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    This 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...

  • Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquidsby Denis J. Evans; Gary Morriss

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 128.00

    Graduate level book on the analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. more...

  • Irreversible Phenomena in Ignitions, Combustion and Detonation Wavesby Kunio Terao

    Springer 2007; US$ 269.00

    This 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...

  • Mass Transferby Koichi Asano

    Wiley 2007; US$ 185.00

    This didactic approach to the principles and modeling of mass transfer as it is needed in modern industrial processes is unique in combining a step-by-step introduction to all important fundamentals with the most recent applications. Based upon the renowned author's successful new modeling method as used for the O-18 process, the exemplary exercises... more...

  • Thermodynamics of Fluids Under Flowby David Jou; Jose Casas-Vazquez; Manuel Criado-Sancho

    Springer 2010; US$ 149.00

    This is the second edition of the book "Thermodynamics of Fluids under Flow," which was published in 2000 and has now been corrected, expanded and updated. This is a companion book to our other title Extended irreversible thermodynamics (D. Jou, J. Casas-Vazquez and G. Lebon, Springer, 4th edition 2010), and of the textbook Understanding... more...
