Thermodynamics is one of the most exciting branches of physical chemistry which has greatly contributed to the modern science. Being concentrated on a wide range of applications of thermodynamics, this book gathers a series of contributions by the finest scientists in the world, gathered in an orderly manner. It can be used in post-graduate courses for students and as a reference book, as it is written in a language pleasing to the reader. It can also serve as a reference material for researchers to whom the thermodynamics is one of the area of interest....
Ionic Liquids (ILs) are one of the most interesting and rapidly developing areas of modern physical chemistry, technologies and engineering. This book, consisting of 29 chapters gathered in 4 sections, reviews in detail and compiles information about some important physical-chemical properties of ILs and new practical approaches. This is the first book of a series of forthcoming publications on this field by this publisher.
Thermodynamics is one of the most exciting branches of physical chemistry which
has greatly contributed to the modern science. Since its inception, great minds have
built their theories of thermodynamics. One should name those of Sadi Carnot,
Clapeyron Claussius, Maxwell, Boltzman, Bernoulli, Leibniz etc. Josiah Willard
Gibbs had perhaps the greatest scientific influence on the development of
thermodynamics. His attention was for some time focused on the study of the Watt
Modern complex dynamical systems1 are highly interconnected and mutually
interdependent, both physically and through a multitude of information
and communication network constraints. The sheer size (i.e., dimensionality)
and complexity of these large-scale dynamical systems often necessitates
a hierarchical decentralized architecture for analyzing and controlling these
systems. Specifically, in the analysis and control-system design of complex
large-scale dynamical systems it is often desirable to treat the overall system
as a collection of interconnected subsystems.
This book represents recent research on tropical cyclones and their impact, and a wide range of topics are covered. An updated global climatology is presented, including the global occurrence of tropical cyclones and the terrestrial factors that may contribute to the variability and long-term trends in their occurrence. Research also examines long term trends in tropical cyclone occurrences and intensity as related to solar activity, while other research discusses the impact climate change may have on these storms....
This book presents some apparent divergences, that is, its content branches off in many
directions. This fact is reflected in the titles of the chapters and the methods applied in
discussing the problems of physical adsorption. It is not accidental. I aimed to prove that the
problems of physical adsorption, in spite of the ramified research fields, have similar or identical
roots. These statements mean that this book is 1) diverse, but still unified and 2) classical, but
still modern. The book contains monographs at a scientific level and some chapters include parts
that can be used by Ph.
