Fundamentals of classical statistical thermodynamics : dissipation, relaxation, and fluctuation theorems / Denis J. Evans, Debra J. Searles, and Stephen R. Williams.

By: Evans, Denis J [author].
Contributor(s): Searles, Debra J [author] | Williams, Stephen R [author].
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Weinheim : Wiley-VCH, ©2016Description: xiii, 205 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9783527410736.Subject(s): Statistical thermodynamicsDDC classification: 536.7
Contents:
1. Introduction -- 2. Introduction to time-reversible, thermostatted dynamical systems, and statistical mechanical ensembles -- 3. The Evans-Searles fluctuation theorem -- 4. The dissipation theorem -- 5. Equilibrium relaxation theorems -- 6. Nonequilibrium steady states -- 7. Applications of the fluctuation, dissipation, and relaxation theorems -- 8. Nonequilibrium work relations, the Clausius inequality, and equilibrium thermodynamics -- 9. Causality.
Summary: Both a comprehensive overview and a treatment at the appropriate level of detail, this textbook explains thermodynamics and generalizes the subject so it can be applied to small nano- or biosystems, arbitrarily far from or close to equilibrium. In addition, nonequilibrium free energy theorems are covered with a rigorous exposition of each one.
