This is the definitive treatise on the fundamentals of statistical mechanics. A concise exposition of classical statistical mechanics is followed by a thorough elucidation of quantum statistical mechanics: postulates, theorems, statistical ensembles, changes in quantum mechanical systems with time, and more. The final two chapters discuss applications of statistical mechanics to thermodynamic behavior. 1930 edition.

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.

Innovative and wide-ranging, this treatment combines precise mathematic style with strong physical intuition. Written by a well-known physicist for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, the book's broad spectrum of applications includes negative temperatures and heat capacities, general and special relativistic effects, black hole thermodynamics, gravitational collapse, energy conversion problems, and efficiencies including simple heat pump theory. The basic ideas and mathematical formulation of thermodynamics are presented in a modern, clear way with the Carathéodory method, which is employed fully, but in simple terms and without advanced mathematics. Statistical mechanics are based on ideas from information theory, and the simpler ideal systems are covered in close connection with the thermodynamic treatment. Mathematical steps are displayed in detail, and abundant problems include worked solutions.

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.

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.

Dieses etablierte Lehrbuch der Technischen Thermodynamik liegt, nach grundlegender Überarbeitung, in der 16. Auflage vor. Es bietet eine gründliche Einführung in die Thermodynamik und ihre technischen Anwendungen in der Energie- und Verfahrenstechnik. Der Schwerpunkt dieses Lehrbuchs liegt in der verständlichen Darstellung der durch den ersten und zweiten Hauptsatz der Thermodynamik gegebenen Grundlagen. Die hierauf aufbauenden Energie- und Entropiebilanzgleichungen ermöglichen die energetische und exergetische Analyse von Prozessen und Zustandsänderungen. Daher sind Energie und Entropie zentrale Begriffe der Thermodynamik, die in den ersten Kapiteln des Buches ausführlich eingeführt werden. In einem zweiten Schwerpunkt des Lehrbuchs werden die Beziehungen, welche die Energie- und Entropiewerte aus messbaren Zustandsgrößen wie Druck und Temperatur zugänglich machen, eingehend erläutert. Ein dritter Schwerpunkt ist den thermodynamischen Aspekten wichtiger energie- und verfahrenstechnischer Anwendungen gewidmet. Praxisnah werden Strömungsprozesse, thermische Stofftrennverfahren, Verbrennungsprozesse und Verbrennungskraftanlagen wie z.B. Gasturbinenanlagen, Brennstoffzellen, thermische Kraftwerke, Kälteanlagen und Wärmepumpen behandelt.
