Among the topics are entropy in the realm of chemical reactions, the thermodynamics of phase change, fields and internal degrees of freedom, critical phenomena and configurational heat capacity, nonlinear thermodynamics, and elements of statistical thermodynamics
The topics include fluctuation relations and the foundations of statistical thermodynamics
, measuring out-of-equilibrium fluctuations, Maxwell's demon in non-equilibrium dynamics, time-reversal symmetry relations for currents in quantum and stochastic non-equilibrium systems, anomalous thermal transport in nanostructures, and a large-deviation approach to non-equilibrium systems.
In his most productive period, 1901-1909, Einstein published 28 papers, of which 16 were related to statistical thermodynamics
The notion that in this lowest energy state, the kinetic energy is still above zero, is one of the great insights of modern statistical thermodynamics
The time evolution of this anisotropic to isotropic transition is modeled on the evolution of a statistical thermodynamics
system with particles on a lattice placed in a magnetic field.
An introduction to applied statistical thermodynamics
Well, it turns out that the same concepts and mathematics used to solve problems in statistical thermodynamics
and information theory also can be applied to economic issues, such as the determination of fair CEO salaries," said Venkatasubramanian.
Next, he assumed a faculty position at New York University, where he taught a graduate course on transport processes and conducted research on the statistical thermodynamics
of the liquid state and on the viscosity of polymer solutions in good and poor solvents.
Using the highest standards of exposition and rigor, the authors develop a novel formulation of thermodynamics that can be viewed as a moderate-sized system theory as compared to statistical thermodynamics
Some forty years ago, I had taken a statistical thermodynamics
course at Stanford University with Professor Walter Vincenti.
He has developed curricula and taught many courses in physical and surface chemistry, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, quantum mechanics (including a popular video series now used in Canadian high schools) and statistical thermodynamics
During the Zurich period, he wrote papers on a wide range of topics in physics: statistical thermodynamics
(the branch of physics that links the micro-world of atoms and molecules and the macro-world of solids, liquids, and gases), the kinetics of gases, vibrations in crystal lattices, the theory of specific heats and general relativity.
