Nonequilibrium thermodynamics

  • 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...

  • 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$ 219.95

    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...

  • 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...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 22.00

    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...

  • Thermodynamics of Non-Equilibrium Processes for Chemists with a Particular Application to Catalysisby V. Parmon

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 285.00

    Thermodynamics of Non-Equilibrium Processes for Chemists with a Particular Application to Catalysis consists of materials adapted from lectures on the thermodynamics of nonequilibrium processes that have been taught at the Department of Natural Sciences of Novosibirsk State University since 1995. The thermodynamics of nonequilibrium processes traditionally... 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...

  • Entropy Demystifiedby Arieh Ben-Naim

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 25.00

    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...
