  • 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...

  • Entropy and the Time Evolution of Macroscopic Systemsby Walter T. Grandy

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 64.99

    This book is based on the premise that the entropy concept, a fundamental element of probability theory as logic, governs all of thermal physics, both equilibrium and nonequilibrium. The variational algorithm of J. Willard Gibbs, dating from the 19th Century and extended considerably over the following 100 years, is shown to be the governing feature... more...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 77.00

    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...

  • Aspects of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamicsby W. Muschik

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 59.00

    In six lectures aspects of modern non-equilibrium thermodynamics of discrete systems as well as continuum theoretical concepts are represented. Starting out with survey and introduction, state spaces are defined, the existence of internal energy is investigated, and Clausius inequality including negative absolute temperature is derived by diagram technique.... more...

  • A Farewell to Entropyby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 135.00

    The principal message of this book is that thermodynamics and statistical mechanics will benefit from replacing the unfortunate, misleading and mysterious term “entropy” with a more familiar, meaningful and appropriate term such as information, missing information or uncertainty. This replacement would facilitate the interpretation of... more...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 43.00

    In this unique book, the reader is invited 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 most textbooks on thermodynamics, but... more...

  • Friction-Induced Vibrations and Self-Organizationby Michael Nosonovsky; Vahid Mortazavi

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 209.95
