Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics: Foundations and Applications

Phil Attard


This book builds from basic principles to advanced techniques, and covers the major phenomena, methods, and results of time-dependent systems. The book treats time-dependent systems by close analogy with their static counterparts, with most of the familiar equilibrium results being generalised to the non-equilibrium case. The book is notable for its unified treatment of thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, stochastic processes, and statistical mechanics; for its coherent derivations of a variety of theorems; and for its quantitative tests against experimental measurements and computer simulations.
