This is the 4th edition of the highly acclaimed monograph on Extended Irreversible Thermodynamics, a theory that goes beyond the classical theory of irreversible processes. In contrast to the classical approach, the basic variables describing the system are complemented by non-equilibrium quantities. The claims made forextended thermodynamics are confirmed by the kinetic theory ofgases and statistical mechanics. The book covers a wide spectrum ofapplications, and also contains a thorough discussion of thefoundations and the scope of the current theories on non-equilibrium thermodynamics.For this new edition, the authors critically revised existingmaterial while taking into account the most recent developments infast moving fields such as heat transport in micro-and nanosystems or fast solidification fronts in materialssciences. Several fundamental chapters have been revisitedemphasizing physics and applications over mathematical derivations.Also, fundamental questions on the definition of non-equilibriumtemperature, entropy, fluctuations of fluxes and boundaryconditions are revisited and presented in a modern way.Detailed solutions for more than 130 problem sets presented in thisbook, as well as a wide bibliography on extended irreversiblethermodynamics are accessible at the http://telemaco.uab.es site.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
