Entropy

  • Entropyby Andreas Greven; Gerhard Keller; Gerald Warnecke

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 120.00

    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...

  • Non-equilibrium thermodynamics and physical kineticsby Halid Bikkin; Igor I. Lyapilin

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 84.00

    This graduate textbook covers contemporary directions of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics as well as classical methods of kinetics. With one of the main propositions being to avoid terms such as "obviously" and "it is easy to show", this treatise is an easy-to-read introduction into this traditional, yet vibrant field. more...

  • Das Entropieprinzipby André Thess

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 56.00

    This volume offers a novel and understandable formulation of entropy, a key concept of thermodynamics. Traditional approaches to the derivation of entropy do not make it easy to comprehend this important dimension in thermodynamics. The Entropy Principle presents a significantly improved derivation and structured formulation of entropy... more...

  • Handbook of Differential Entropyby Joseph Victor Michalowicz; Jonathan M. Nichols; Frank Bucholtz

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 83.95

    One of the main issues in communications theory is measuring the ultimate data compression possible using the concept of entropy. While differential entropy may seem to be a simple extension of the discrete case, it is a more complex measure that often requires a more careful treatment. Handbook of Differential Entropy provides a comprehensive... more...

  • Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquidsby Denis J. Evans; Gary P. Morriss; D. P. Craig; R. McWeeny

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquids deals with theoretical rheology. The book discusses nonlinear response of systems and outlines the statistical mechanical theory. In discussing the framework of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, the book explains the derivation of a nonequilibrium analogue of the Gibbsian basis for equilibrium statistical... more...

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

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 209.95

    Many scientists and engineers do not realize that, under certain conditions, friction can lead to the formation of new structures at the interface, including in situ tribofilms and various patterns. In turn, these structures?usually formed by destabilization of the stationary sliding regime?can lead to the reduction of friction and wear. Friction-Induced... 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...

  • Miniature Joule-Thomson Cryocoolingby Ben-Zion Maytal; John M. Pfotenhauer

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 229.00

    The principles behind Joule-Thomson cryocooling demonstrate the workings of real gas thermodynamics. With exhaustive coverage of this vital topic, this book is a systematic and lucidly expressed analysis of the process that is suitable for lone study. more...

  • The Entropy Principleby André Thess

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 79.95

    Entropy is the most important and the most difficult to understand term of thermodynamics. This book helps make this key concept understandable. It includes seven illustrative examples of applications of entropy, which are presented step by step. more...

  • Thermodynamics of Fluids Under Flowby David Jou; José Casas-Vázquez; Manuel Criado-Sancho

    Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 149.00

    This is the second edition of ?Thermodynamics of Fluids under Flow,? which has now been corrected, expanded and updated. It provides macroscopic and microscopic approaches to assessing flow contributions to thermodynamic quantities. more...
