About this book

This book deals with the formulation of the thermodynamics of chemical and other systems far from equilibrium, including connections to fluctuations. It contains applications to non-equilibrium stationary states and approaches to such states, systems with multiple stationary states, stability and equi-stability conditions, reaction diffusion systems, transport properties, and electrochemical systems. The theoretical treatment is complemented by experimental results to substantiate the formulation. Dissipation and efficiency are analyzed in autonomous and externally forced reactions, including several biochemical systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Generalizing thermodynamics to treat … nonequilibrium situations is the subject matter of ‘Thermodynamics and Fluctuations far from Equilibrium,’ by John Ross. Because nonequilibrium thermodynamics lies at the heart of many diverse real processes, the book’s subject matter should prove useful to a wide audience including, among others, physicists, chemists, biologists, and engineers. … This book is a welcome contribution to the topic." (Raymond Kapral, Chemical and Engineering News, Vol. 86 (36), 2008)
