- Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95
Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics deals with the method of thermodynamic potentials, the four Gibbsian potentials, and Boltzmann's statistics. The book reviews the general considerations of thermodynamics, such as the first and second laws of thermodynamics, the van der Waals equation, and Nernst's third law of thermodynamics. The text also... more...

Boltzmann's formula S = In[ W (E) ] defines the microcanonical ensemble. The usual textbooks on statistical mechanics start with the microensemble but rather quickly switch to the canonical ensemble introduced by Gibbs. This has the main advantage of easier analytical calculations, but there is a price to pay — for example, phase transitions... more...

Every day brings a fresh barrage of bewildering claims about science and technology. How non-scientists tell the difference between the hyperbole and those developments that are important? With a modest amount of critical thinking, an understanding of how science is practiced, and a qualitative understanding of the two most sacred principles in science... more...

All human activities, including mental activities, are governed by physical laws and are essentially thermodynamic processes. However, current economic theories are not established on these foundations. This pioneering book seeks to develop an analytical theory of economics on the foundation of thermodynamic laws. A unified understanding of economic... more...

This text presents the conceptual and technical developments of the subject without unduly compromising on either the historical or logical perspective. It also covers the tremendous range of scientifically deep and technologically revolutionary applications of thermodynamics. The text explains how thermodynamics evolved from a few basic laws that... more...
- Wiley 2013; US$ 150.00
This undergraduate textbook provides a statistical mechanical foundation to the classical laws of thermodynamics via a comprehensive treatment of the basics of classical thermodynamics, equilibrium statistical mechanics, irreversible thermodynamics, and the statistical mechanics of non-equilibrium phenomena. This timely book has a unique focus on... more...
- Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 88.00
This book provide an interwoven development of classical and statistical thermodynamic principles from a modern perspective. more...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 159.00
This book applies the system concept to design by developing a deeper understanding of the fundamentals, by defining design and its engineering characteristics and by applying the system concept to early stages of design, where it has the greatest impact. more...
- De Gruyter 2011; US$ 77.00
Dieses Werk hilft angehenden Ingenieuren im Grundstudium, sich den oft schwer verständlichen Stoff der Thermodynamik anzueignen und Lücken zu schließen, die in den Vorlesungen aus Zeitmangel gelassen wurden. Neben einer präzisen mathematisch-physikalischen Darstellung der Grundlagen nehmen Beispiele aus der Praxis großen Raum ein. Insbesondere... more...
