Entropy and Information by Mikhail V. Volkenstein
English | PDF | 2009 | 214 Pages | ISBN : 3034600771 | 2.3 MB

This is just…entropy, he said, thinking that this explained everything, and he repeated the strange word a few times. 1 ? Karel Capek , “Krakatit” This “strange word” denotes one of the most basic quantities of the physics of heat phenomena, that is, of thermodynamics. Although the concept of entropy did indeed originate in thermodynamics, it later became clear that it was a more universal concept, of fundamental signi?cance for chemistry and biology, as well as physics.

The Rise of Engineering Science: How Technology Became Scientific by David F. Channell
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 202 Pages | ISBN : 3319956051 | 2.98 MB

The 18th and 19th centuries saw the emergence of new intermediary types of knowledge in areas such as applied mechanics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, which came to be labeled as engineering science, transforming technology into the scientific discipline that we know today.

Principles of Physics: For Scientists and Engineers by Hafez A . Radi
English | PDF | 2013 | 1069 Pages | ISBN : 3642230253 | 61.5 MB

This textbook presents a basic course in physics to teach mechanics, mechanical properties of matter, thermal properties of matter, elementary thermodynamics, electrodynamics, electricity, magnetism, light and optics and sound. It includes simple mathematical approaches to each physical principle, and all examples and exercises are selected carefully to reinforce each chapter. In addition, answers to all exercises are included that should ultimately help solidify the concepts in the minds of the students and increase their confidence in the subject.

An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars by Matthew Benacquista
English | PDF | 2013 | 262 Pages | ISBN : 1441999906 | 4.4 MB

An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars provides physicists with an understanding of binary and single star evolution, beginning with a background and introduction of basic astronomical concepts. Although a general treatment of stellar structure and evolution is included, the text stresses the physical processes that lead to stellar mass compact object binaries that may be sources of observable gravitational radiation.

Problem Solving For Engineers and Scientists: A Creative Approach

Problem Solving For Engineers and Scientists: A Creative Approach by Raymond Friedman
English | PDF | 1991 | 166 Pages | ISBN : 0442004788 | 12 MB

Let's assume that you, the reader, have been educated in the basics of science and perhaps some branch of engineering. You have access to textbooks and handbooks, and you are comfortable with a computer. One day, you find yourself faced with a technical problem. If this problem happens to be essentially identical to a previous problem, which you were trained to solve, clearly you will have no difficulty.

Thermodynamics

Thermodynamics by John Simonson
English | PDF | 1993 | 608 Pages | ISBN : 0333555759 | 39.6 MB

Thermodynamics is another title in the Foundations of Engineering Series. The books present the content using the carefully constructed 'programme approach' made famous by Ken Stroud in Engineering Mathematics. Thermodynamics presents the first two years of undergraduate thermodynamics in a step by step format allowing self-paced study. Numerous worked examples are integrated within each chapter and further unworked questions allow the student to evaluate their grasp of the material and reinforce the key concepts of each chapter.

Kinetic Theory of Gases in Shear Flows: Nonlinear Transport

Kinetic Theory of Gases in Shear Flows: Nonlinear Transport by Vicente Garzó
English | PDF | 2003 | 353 Pages | ISBN : 9048163471 | 31.1 MB

The kinetic theory of gases as we know it dates to the paper of Boltzmann in 1872. The justification and context of this equation has been clarified over the past half century to the extent that it comprises one of the most complete examples of many-body analyses exhibiting the contraction from a microscopic to a mesoscopic description.

Challenges to the Second Law of Thermodynamics: Theory and Experiment

Challenges to the Second Law of Thermodynamics: Theory and Experiment by Vladislav Čápek
English | PDF | 2005 | 368 Pages | ISBN : 1402030150 | 7.2 MB

The second law of thermodynamics is considered one of the central laws of science, engineering and technology. For over a century it has been assumed to be inviolable by the scientific community. Over the last 10-20 years, however, more than two dozen challenges to it have appeared in the physical literature - more than during any other period in its 150-year history.

New Directions in Statistical Physics: Econophysics, Bioinformatics, and Pattern Recognition by Luc T. Wille
English | PDF | 2004 | 369 Pages | ISBN : 3540431829 | 36.54 MB

Statistical physics addresses the study and understanding of systems with many degrees of freedom. As such it has a rich and varied history, with applications to thermodynamics, magnetic phase transitions, and order/disorder transformations, to name just a few. However, the tools of statistical physics can be profitably used to investigate any system with a large number of components.

English | PDF | 1986 | 330 Pages | ISBN : 0306421771 | 22.6 MB

This book is intended for scientists, researchers, and graduate students interested in solutions in general, and solutions of metals in particular. Readers are assumed to have a good background in thermodynamics, presented in such books as those cited at the end of Chapter 1, "Thermo­ dynamic Background."

Statistical Theory of Open Systems Volume 1: A Unified Approach to Kinetic Description of Processes in Active Systems by Yu. L. Klimontovich
English | PDF | 1995 | 589 Pages | ISBN : 0792331990 | 71.07 MB

Let us begin by quoting from the Preface to the author's Statistical Physics (Moscow, Nauka 1982; also published in English by Harwood in 1986): '''My God! Yet another book on statistical physics! There's no room on my bookshelves left!' Such emotionsare quite understandable. Beforejumping to conclusions, however, it would be worthwhile to read the Introduction and look through the table of contents.

Foundations of Statistical Mechanics: Equilibrium Theory

Foundations of Statistical Mechanics: Equilibrium Theory by Walter T. GrandyJr.
English | PDF | 1987 | 391 Pages | ISBN : 902772489X | 33.67 MB

In a certain sense this book has been twenty-five years in the writing, since I first struggled with the foundations of the subject as a graduate student. It has taken that long to develop a deep appreciation of what Gibbs was attempting to convey to us near the end of his life and to understand fully the same ideas as resurrected by E.T. Jaynes much later.
