Statistical Thermodynamics: Understanding the Properties of Macroscopic Systems

1st Edition

Lukong Cornelius Fai, Gary Matthew Wysin
September 05, 2019

Statistical thermodynamics and the related domains of statistical physics and quantum mechanics are very important in many fields of research, including plasmas, rarefied gas dynamics, nuclear systems, lasers, semiconductors, superconductivity, ortho- and para-hydrogen, liquid helium, and so on....

Sturge's Statistical and Thermal Physics, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Jeffrey Olafsen
July 19, 2019

The original work by M.D. Sturge has been updated and expanded to include new chapters covering non-equilibrium and biological systems. This second edition re-organizes the material in a more natural manner into four parts that continues to assume no previous knowledge of thermodynamics. The four...

Whereas other...

A Different Thermodynamics and its True Heroes

1st Edition

Evgeni B. Starikov
April 01, 2019

Modern thermodynamics is a unique but still not a logically self-consistent field of knowledge. It has a proven universal applicability and significance but its actual potential is still latent. The development of the foundations of thermodynamics was in effect non-stop but absolutely no one has...

Statistical Physics of Dense Plasmas: Elementary Processes and Phase Transitions

1st Edition

Setsuo Ichimaru

This authoritative text offers a complete overview on the statistical mechanics and electrodynamics of physical processes in dense plasma systems. The author emphasizes laboratory-based experiments and astrophysical observations of plasma phenomena, elucidated through the fundamentals. The coverage...

Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications

1st Edition

Daniel J. Graham
September 10, 2018

Thermodynamics and information touch theory every facet of chemistry. However, the physical chemistry curriculum digested by students worldwide is still heavily skewed toward heat/work principles established more than a century ago. Rectifying this situation, Chemical Thermodynamics and Information...

Statistical Mechanics for Chemistry and Materials Science

1st Edition

Biman Bagchi
July 17, 2018

This book covers the broad subject of equilibrium statistical mechanics along with many advanced and modern topics such as nucleation, spinodal decomposition, inherent structures of liquids and liquid crystals. Unlike other books on the market, this comprehensive text not only deals with the...

Small Systems and Fundamentals of Thermodynamics

1st Edition

Yu. K. Tovbin
July 10, 2018

Small systems are a very active area of research and development due to improved instrumentation that allows for spatial resolution in the range of sizes from one to 100 nm. In this size range, many physical and chemical properties change, which opens up new approaches to the study of substances...
