Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser Titel erschien in der Zeit vor 1945 und wird daher in seiner zeittypischen politisch-ideologischen Ausrichtung vom Verlag nicht beworben.

Ilya Prigogine won the 1977 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his contributions to non-equilibrium thermodynamics. This groundbreaking 1962 monograph, written for researchers and graduate students in this field, was his first book-length contribution to this subject. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in physics and chemistry, the treatment begins with examinations of the Liouville equation, anharmonic solids, and Brownian motion. Subsequent chapters explore weakly coupled gases, scattering theory and short-range forces, distribution functions and their diagrammatic representation, the time dependence of diagrams, the approach to equilibrium in ionized gases, and statistical hydrodynamics. Additional topics include general kinetic equations, general H-theorem, quantum mechanics, and irreversibility and invariants of motion. Appendices, a bibliography, list of symbols, and an index conclude the text.

Well respected and widely used, this volume presents problems and full solutions related to a wide range of topics in thermodynamics, statistical physics, and statistical mechanics. The text is intended for instructors, undergraduates, and graduate students of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering. Twenty-eight chapters, each prepared by an expert, proceed from simpler to more difficult subjects. Similarly, the early chapters are easier than the later ones, making the book ideal for independent study. Subjects begin with the laws of thermodynamics and statistical theory of information and of ensembles, advancing to the ideal classical gases of polyatomic molecules, non-electrolyte liquids and solutions, and surfaces. Subsequent chapters explore imperfect classical and quantum gas, phase transitions, cooperative phenomena, Green function methods, the plasma, transport in gases and metals, Nyquist's theorem and its generalizations, stochastic methods, and many other topics.

Die amerikanische Ausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1947 in der dritten, nicht unwesentlich erweiterten Auflage. Der Verfasser erwähnt in seinem Vorwort, daß es ursprünglich aus dem Text von Vorlesungen an der Design School der W estinghouse Company entstand und zu nächst für den Unterrichtsgebrauch an der Harvard Engineering School herausgegeben wurde. In die Neuauflage wurden neue Veröffentlichungen und eigene Erfahrungen eingearbeitet. Im Vorwort der deutschen Erstauflage (1936) wurde darauf hin gewiesen, daß das vorliegende Buch eine glückliche, dem ingenieur mäßigen Denken entsprechende Anschaulichkeit hat. Der Verfasser ver meidet es, lediglich Gebrauchsanweisungen für Rechenvorschriften zu geben; andererseits verzichtet er auf die Ausarbeitung der vollstän digen, strengen Theorie. Er versteht es, dem Leser die wesentlichen Zusammenhänge auch verwickelter Erscheinungen plausibel zu machen. So vermittelt die Darstellung nicht einen höheren theoreti schen Überblick, sondern leitet den Leser mit einfacher mathematischer oder anschaulicher mechanischer Begründung auf einen Weg, der in praktischen Schwingungsfragen zur zahlenmäßigen Lösung, mindestens aber zu einer guten Annäherung der "exakten" Lösung führt. Eine Fülle von Beispielen und Aufgaben regt dazu an, die Beherrschung der dargelegten Rechenverfahren zu erproben und zu vertiefen. Aus diesen Gründen erfolgte die Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache. Inzwischen ist die amerikanische Ausgabe mit großem Erfolg im Hochschulunterricht eingesetzt worden. Den deutschen Leser inter essiert vielleicht der Hinweis, daß der Hochschulunterricht in Amerika von der europäischen Art sehr verschieden ist. Die Vorlesungen werden nach einem bestimmten "Textbuch" gelesen.
