By Roderick C. Dewar,Charles H. Lineweaver,Robert K. Niven,Klaus Regenauer-Lieb

the second one legislation, a cornerstone of thermodynamics, governs the typical course of dissipative, non-equilibrium methods. however it says not anything approximately their real premiums or the likelihood of fluctuations in regards to the standard. This interdisciplinary publication, written and peer-reviewed via overseas specialists, offers contemporary advances within the look for new non-equilibrium ideas past the second one legislations, and their functions to a variety of platforms throughout physics, chemistry and biology. past the second one legislations brings jointly ordinarily remoted components of non-equilibrium study and highlights probably fruitful connections among them, with entropy construction taking part in the unifying function. Key theoretical ideas comprise the utmost Entropy construction precept, the Fluctuation Theorem, and the utmost Entropy approach to statistical inference. purposes of those ideas are illustrated in such different fields as climatology, cosmology, crystal development morphology, Earth process technological know-how, environmental physics, evolutionary biology and expertise, fluid turbulence, microbial biogeochemistry, plasma physics, and radiative delivery, utilizing a large choice of analytical and experimental suggestions. past the second one legislations will entice scholars and researchers wishing to realize an knowing of entropy creation and its relevant position within the technological know-how of non-equilibrium platforms – either intimately and when it comes to the larger picture.

Wave Turbulence refers back to the statistical conception of weakly nonlinear dispersive waves. there's a broad and becoming spectrum of actual purposes, starting from sea waves, to plasma waves, to superfluid turbulence, to nonlinear optics and Bose-Einstein condensates. past the basics the ebook therefore additionally covers new advancements resembling the interplay of random waves with coherent buildings (vortices, solitons, wave breaks), inverse cascades resulting in condensation and the transitions among vulnerable and powerful turbulence, turbulence intermittency in addition to finite approach dimension results, resembling “frozen” turbulence, discrete wave resonances and avalanche-type power cascades.
