Overview

Rational extended thermodynamics explores the tenets of non-equilibrium thermodynamics in an efficient and systematic manner; the theory is relevant to processes with rapid changes and steep gradients. After describing the motifs, the early evolution, and the formal structure of this new branch of irreversible thermodynamics, the authors apply the theory to mon-atomic gases, mixtures of gases, relativistic gases and "gases" of photons, phonons and metal electrons. Thus researchers in mathematics, physics and thermodynamics may find the book relevant to their work.
