By Sven Erik Jørgensen

Evolution is nature's so much attention-grabbing strategy, the chance given adequate time to mix easy inorganic compounds to increasingly more advanced biochemical compounds, which make up a growing number of complicated organisms. it really is accordingly an important in our attempt to appreciate the evolution to work out it from as many various angles as attainable. This books draw a picture of evolution from the thermodynamic standpoint, which provides new and impressive insights into the approaches and mechanisms that experience pushed evolution. This new thermodynamic interpretation has made it attainable to quantify some of the steps of evolution and to teach that evolution has an exponential progress curve. *The first entire thermodynamic interpretation and rationalization of evolution *This thermodynamic interpretation makes it attainable to quantify a few of the steps of evolution *This interpretation explains the large spectrum of other mechanisms on which the evolution has been dependent

By W. T. Grandy Jr, P. W. Milonni

The pioneering paintings of Edwin T. Jaynes within the box of statistical physics, quantum optics, and chance concept has had an important and lasting influence at the examine of many actual difficulties, starting from basic theoretical questions via to functional purposes comparable to optical picture recovery. Physics and likelihood is a suite of papers in those components by means of a few of his many colleagues and previous scholars, established principally on lectures given at a symposium celebrating Jaynes' contributions, at the celebration of his 70th birthday and retirement as Wayman Crow Professor of Physics at Washington college. the gathering comprises a number of authoritative overviews of present study on greatest entropy and quantum optics, the place Jaynes' paintings has been fairly influential, in addition to studies on a couple of comparable themes. within the concluding paper, Jaynes seems to be again over his profession, and offers encouragement and sound recommendation to younger scientists. All these engaged in learn on any of the subjects mentioned in those papers will locate this an invaluable and engaging assortment, and a becoming tribute to a great and cutting edge scientist.

By Enrico Fermi

Il contenuto
La chiarezza e l'organicità di pensiero di Enrico Fermi conferiscono un pregio particolare e un particolare valore sistematico anche a una trattazione relativamente facile, basata su un corso di lezioni universitarie, come è questa. È un trattato di termodinamica pura, che presuppone in step withò l. a. conoscenza delle nozioni termometriche e calorimetriche fondamentali. Dal punto di vista matematico non sono richieste conoscenze superiori al calcolo infinitesimale. Partendo dalla definizione dei sistemi termodinamici, e attraverso l. a. discussione della prima e della seconda legge della termodinamica, l. a. trattazione si sofferma sulle proprietà dei cicli, sull'entropia, sulle equazioni di Clapeyron e di van der Waals. Tre capitoli sono dedicati, rispettivamente, ai potenziali termodinamici, alle reazioni gassose, alla termodinamica delle soluzioni diluite. Brevi accenni all'interpretazione statistica della termodinamica vengono fatti qua e là, nel corso dell'esposizione. Nell'ultimo capitolo, poi, in cui si tratta del teorema di Nernst, della costante dell'entropia dei gasoline, della ionizzazione di un gasoline e dell'effetto termoionico, si accenna tra l'altro alle prospettive che l'introduzione della costante di Planck può aprire alla termodinamica e ai possibili sviluppi di una teoria statistica basata organicamente sulla teoria dei quanti.

By Hans D. Baehr

Das seit Jahrzehnten bew?hrte Lehrbuch bietet eine moderne und intestine verst?ndliche Darstellung der chemischen Thermodynamik. Es f?hrt ein in die thermodynamischen Begriffe, die Zustands- und Prozessgr??en sowie die Formulierung der Bilanzgleichungen f?r Energie, Entropie und Exergie. Die thermodynamischen Eigenschaften reiner Fluide und fluider Gemische werden eingehend erl?utert. Darauf aufbauend wird die Thermodynamik der Gemische und der chemischen Reaktionen entwickelt. Auch die thermodynamischen Aspekte wichtiger energie- und verfahrenstechnischer Anwendungen werden praxisnah behandelt: Str?mungs- und Arbeitsprozesse, thermische Stofftrennverfahren, Phasen- und Reaktionsgleichgewichte, Verbrennungsprozesse und Verbrennungskraftanlagen, thermische Kraftwerke, Heizsysteme und K?lteanlagen. Die 12. Auflage enth?lt neu bearbeitete Abschnitte ?ber Stoffdaten sowie genaue Berechnungsgleichungen f?r verschiedene Temperaturabh?ngigkeiten. Zahlreiche Korrekturen und Erg?nzungen wurden bei der Behandlung des thermischen Gleichgewichts und der CO2-Emissionen der Stromerzeugung vorgenommen; das Kapitel ?ber Verbrennungsprozesse und Verbrennungskraftanlagen wurde neu bearbeitet. Bestens geeignet als Lehrbuch f?r Studierende des Maschinenbaus und der Verfahrenstechnik sowie als Nachschlagewerk f?r den Ingenieur in Forschung und Praxis.
