Nonequilibrium Thermodynamics: Transport and Rate Processes in Physical, Chemical and Biological Systems, 3rd Edition
As stated in the preface, this third edition text is intended for senior and graduate courses in "chemical, mechanical, system biomedical, tissue, biological, and biological systems engineering, as well as physical, biophysical, biological, chemical, and biochemical sciences." Updates and new material are incorporated in chapters on fundamentals of equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermodynamics, transport and rate processes, using the Second Law, thermoeconomics, diffusion, heat and mass transfer, chemical reactions, coupled systems, membrane transport, biological systems, stability analysis, organized structures, and approaches, including a probabilistic approach.
