Entropy

Most popular at the top

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 105.00

    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 and Entropy Generationby J.S. Shiner

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 109.00

    Entropy and entropy generation play essential roles in our understanding of many diverse phenomena ranging from cosmology to biology. Their importance is manifest in areas of immediate practical interest such as the provision of global energy as well as in others of a more fundamental flavour such as the source of order and complexity in nature.... more...

  • Beyond Equilibrium Thermodynamicsby Hans Christian Ošttinger

    Wiley 2005; US$ 180.00 US$ 156.00

    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 Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 38.00

    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 US$ 144.38

    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$ 149.00

    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$ 44.00 US$ 36.08

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

  • Mass Transferby Koichi Asano

    Wiley 2007; US$ 197.00 US$ 170.73

    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...

  • Discover Entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamicsby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 23.00

    This is a sequel to the author's book entitled "Entropy Demystified". The aim is essentially the same as that of the previous book by the author: to present Entropy and the Second Law as simple, meaningful and comprehensible concepts. In addition, this book presents a series of experiments which are designed to help the reader discover... 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...
