Maximum Dissipation: Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics and its Geometric Structure explores the thermodynamics of non-equilibrium processes in materials. The book develops a general technique created in order to construct nonlinear evolution equations describing non-equilibrium processes, while also developing a geometric context for non-equilibrium thermodynamics. Solid materials are the main focus in this volume, but the construction is shown to also apply to fluids. This volume also: * Explains the theory behind thermodynamically-consistent construction of non-linear evolution equations for non-equilibrium processes * Provides a geometric setting for non-equilibrium thermodynamics through several standard models, which are defined as maximum dissipation processes * Emphasizes applications to the time-dependent modeling of soft biological tissue Maximum Dissipation: Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics and its Geometric Structure will be valuable for researchers, engineers and graduate students in non-equilibrium thermodynamics and the mathematical modeling of material behavior.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The author presents his construction of a geometric model for non-equilibrium thermodynamics and his maximum dissipation criterion which is assumed to complement the second law of thermodynamics. ... the author explores different concrete situations where his construction of a maximum dissipation criterion may be applied. ... This book will be interesting for researchers involved either in applied mathematics or in mechanics." (Alain Brillard, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1222, 2011)
