Extended irreversible thermodynamics

This fourth variation of the acclaimed monograph is going past the classical concept of irreversible strategies to hide a number of functions, and features a thorough dialogue of the principles and scope of present theories on non-equilibrium thermodynamics.

Equilibrium Thermodynamics

After many hard classes with different thermodynamics texts, i eventually came across a transparent and intuitive clarification of the basics during this textual content. i've been concerning this article as useful for a few years. -- Daniel Matuszak, NovoCatalysis

Minimum entropy H-infinity control

This monograph is anxious with the layout of suggestions controllers for linear multivariable platforms, that are strong to approach uncertainty. procedure uncertainty might be realistically represented through together with perturbations with bounded H? -norm, and this can be the procedure taken right here. For a given H? -norm sure, there's a family members of robustly stabilizing controllers, and the imperative query during this e-book is which of those controllers to settle on.
