New and Published Books

  1. Quantum Thermodynamic Processes

    Energy and Information Flow at the Nanoscale

    By Guenter Mahler

    The point of departure of this book is a triad of themes: information theory, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics. These are related: thermodynamics and quantum mechanics form the basis of quantum thermodynamics; information and quantum mechanics underly, inter alia, the notorious quantum...

  2. Electrostatics of Soft and Disordered Matter

    Edited by David S. Dean, Jure Dobnikar, Ali Naji, Rudolf Podgornik

    Recently, there has been a surge of activity to elucidate the behavior of highly charged soft matter and Coulomb fluids in general. Such systems are ubiquitous, especially in biological matter where the length scale and the strength of the interaction between highly charged biomolecules are...

  3. The Physics of Exciton-Polariton Condensates

    By Konstantinos Lagoudakis

    After the first demonstration of Bose Einstein condensation in the solid state in 2006 and the establishment of exciton polariton condensates in the wider scientific community, an intense interest has been attracted by this phenomenon at both theoretical and experimental level. This book presents...

  8. Classical Econophysics

    By Allin F. Cottrell, Paul Cockshott, Gregory John Michaelson, Ian P. Wright, Victor Yakovenko

    Series: Routledge Advances in Experimental and Computable Economics

    This monograph examines the domain of classical political economy using the methodologies developed in recent years both by the new discipline of econo-physics and by computing science. This approach is used to re-examine the classical subdivisions of political economy: production, exchange,...

  9. Chemical Thermodynamics and Information Theory with Applications

    By Daniel J. Graham

    Thermodynamics and information touch theory every facet of chemistry. However, the physical chemistry curriculum digested by students worldwide is still heavily skewed toward heat/work principles established more than a century ago. Rectifying this situation, Chemical Thermodynamics and Information...

  10. Statistical and Thermal Physics

    An Introduction

    By Michael J.R. Hoch

    Concepts and relationships in thermal and statistical physics form the foundation for describing systems consisting of macroscopically large numbers of particles. Developing microscopic statistical physics and macroscopic classical thermodynamic descriptions in tandem, Statistical and Thermal...
