Quantum Thermodynamic Processes: Energy and Information Flow at the Nanoscale

Guenter Mahler
December 19, 2014

The point of departure of this book is a triad of themes: information theory, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics. These are related: thermodynamics and quantum mechanics form the basis of quantum thermodynamics; information and quantum mechanics underly, inter alia, the notorious quantum...

Electrostatics of Soft and Disordered Matter

David S. Dean, Jure Dobnikar, Ali Naji, Rudolf Podgornik
May 02, 2014

Recently, there has been a surge of activity to elucidate the behavior of highly charged soft matter and Coulomb fluids in general. Such systems are ubiquitous, especially in biological matter where the length scale and the strength of the interaction between highly charged biomolecules are...

The Physics of Exciton-Polariton Condensates

Konstantinos Lagoudakis
December 02, 2013

After the first demonstration of Bose Einstein condensation in the solid state in 2006 and the establishment of exciton polariton condensates in the wider scientific community, an intense interest has been attracted by this phenomenon at both theoretical and experimental level. This book presents...

It enhances understanding of heat transfer, steam tables, energy concepts, power...

Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications

Daniel J. Graham
June 07, 2011

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 and Thermal Physics: An Introduction

Michael J.R. Hoch
May 25, 2011

Concepts and relationships in thermal and statistical physics form the foundation for describing systems consisting of macroscopically large numbers of particles. Developing microscopic statistical physics and macroscopic classical thermodynamic descriptions in tandem, Statistical and Thermal...
