Simulation And Control Of Chaotic Nonequilibrium Systems: With A Foreword By Julien Clinton Sprott
With a Foreword by Julien Clinton Sprott
William Graham Hoover, Carol Griswold Hoover
This book aims to provide a lively working knowledge of the thermodynamic control of microscopic simulations, while summarizing the historical development of the subject, along with some personal reminiscences. Many computational examples are described so that they are well-suited to learning by doing. The contents enhance the current understanding of the reversibility paradox and are accessible to advanced undergraduates and researchers in physics, computation, and irreversible thermodynamics.
