Thermodynamics is the branch of science concerned with heat and
temperature and their relation to energy and work. Being concentrated on a
wide range of applications of thermodynamics, this book gathers a series of
contributions by the finest scientists in the world, gathered in an orderly
manner. It can be used in post-graduate courses for students and as a
reference book, as it is written in a language pleasing to the reader.
Clearly written treatment elucidates
fundamental concepts and demonstrates their plausibility and usefulness.
Language is informal, examples are vivid and lively, and the perspectivie is
fresh. Based on lectures delivered to engineering students, this work will also
be valued by scientists, engineers, technicians, businessmen, anyone facing
energy challenges of the future.
This book presents the selection of various high level
contributions involving thermodynamics. The book goes from the fundamentals up
to several applications in different scientific fields. The content of the book
has been classified in six sections: Classical Thermodynamics, Statistical
Thermodynamics, Property Prediction in Thermodynamics, Material and Products,
Non Equilibrium and Thermodynamics in Diverse Areas.
book covers: Probability, Thermodynamics,
Ergodicity and the Approach to Equilibrium, Statistical Ensembles, Noninteracting Quantum Systems, Interacting Systems,
Mean Field Theory of Phase Transitions,
