Non-equilibrium thermodynamics is a branch of thermodynamics that deals with systems that are not in thermodynamic equilibrium. Most systems found in nature are not in thermodynamic equilibrium because they are not in stationary states, and are continuously and discontinuously subject to flux of matter and energy to and from other systems. This book treats irreversible processes and phenomena — non-equilibrium thermodynamics. S. R. de Groot and P. Mazur, Professors of Theoretical Physics, present a comprehensive and insightful survey of the foundations of the field, providing the only complete discussion of the fluctuating linear theory of irreversible thermodynamics.3/5(1).

The book is aimed in researchers but I would say that the first lines might be useful for getting a general picture of the main universal steps involved in the non-equilibrium analysis of thermodynamic systems.

Mazur, Professors of Theoretical Physics, present a comprehensive and insightful survey of the foundations of the field, providing the only complete discussion of the fluctuating linear theory of irreversible : Dover Publications.

In non-equilibrium thermodynamics the principle of entropy increase is expressed by the rate of entropy production being positive (σ > 0). The rate of entropy production σ is determined solely by irreversible processes, such as diffusion, thermal conduction, and viscosity. The purpose of this book is to encourage the use of non-equilibrium thermodynamics to describe transport in complex, heterogeneous media. With large coupling effects between the transport of heat, mass, charge and chemical reactions at surfaces, it is important to know how one should properly.

Published by University of Colorado Press () Used. First Edition. Now we are in a position to understand the “closing” of the equations of nonequilibrium thermodynamics. In general one assumes that dissipative fluxes are (analytical) functionals of the thermodynamic forces (at least close to equilibrium, where the thermodynamic forces are small), so that: J α (r, t) = J α [X ß (r, t)].In practice, a linear approximation is used for the relationship.

Thermodynamics is one of the most exciting branches of physical chemistry which has greatly contributed to the modern science. Being concentrated on a wide range of applications of thermodynamics, this book gathers a series of contributions by the finest scientists in the world, gathered in an orderly manner.
