Entropy

Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • Beyond Equilibrium Thermodynamicsby Hans Christian O¨ttinger

    Wiley 2005; US$ 174.00

    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...

  • Entropy and Energyby Ingo Müller; Wolf Weiss

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00

    Provides an introduction to thermodynamics and the concept of entropy and energy. This book gives instructive examples from elementary thermodynamics and physico-chemistry, and extrapolates the notion to non-standard thermodynamic subjects like shape memory, dissipation of the earth's atmosphere, and sociology. 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...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 119.00

    In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader to experience the joy of appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years — entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the Second Law is not “infinitely incomprehensible” as commonly stated in textbooks of thermodynamics... more...

  • Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomenaby Michael Peters

    McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 165.00

    Many newly developing fields of science and engineering, including nanotechnology, protein engineering, microfluidics, etc., require an in-depth molecular understanding and description of matter. Molecular Thermodynamics and Transport Phenomena: Complexities of Scales in Space and Time provides a rigorous molecular and statistical mechanical basis... more...

  • Thermodynamic Equilibria and Extremaby Alexander N. Gorban; Boris M. Kaganovich; Sergey P. Filippov; Alexandre V. Keiko; Vitaly A. Shamansky; Igor A. Shirkalin

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 129.00

    This book discusses mathematical models that are based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics. These are intended for the analysis of possible results of diverse natural and production processes. Unlike traditional models, these allow readers to view the achievable set of partial equilibria with regards to constraints on kinetics,... more...

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

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 36.00

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

  • The Second Law of Lifeby John E.J. Schmitz

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 84.95

    In this compelling, and important book, John Schmitz brings order to the world of chaos that surrounds us. The Second Law of Life refers to the second law of thermodynamics, entropy, which is an omnipresent force that quietly and crucially determines every aspect of our society, culture and daily lives. Unless we come to understand entropy, future... more...

  • Mass Transferby Koichi Asano

    Wiley 2007; US$ 191.00

    Mass transfer phenomena can now be observed in many fields of industry. In particular, separation processes, which make up the vast majority of industrial production procedures, are governed by the physics of mass transfer, and their design and optimization depends heavily on knowledge in this field. This didactic approach to the principles and modeling... more...
