- Springer 1996; US$ 192.00
This book contains fourteen contributions covering such topics as quantum thermodynamics, nonlinear processes, gravitational and irreversible thermodynamics, the thermodynamics of Taylor dispersion, and higher order transport. more...
- Springer 2004; US$ 199.00
This monograph presents, from the viewpoint of continuum mechanics, a field of irreversible thermodynamics, in which linear irreversible thermodynamics are extended to the nonlinear regime and macroscopic phenomena far removed from equilibrium are studied. more...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
