This book provides an introduction to extended irreversible thermodynamics (EIT) within classical thermodynamics and the fundamentals of this theory. It provides a systematic presentation of EIT in nanosystems for students and researchers, and industrial professionals. EIT provides powerful tools departing not from empirical or statistical considerations but from fundamental thermodynamic laws, proposing final solutions that are readily usable and recognizable for students, researchers and industry. The book also deals with how physical properties of systems behave as a function of their size.
