This book deals with the formulation of the thermodynamics of chemical and other systems far from equilibrium. It contains applications to non-equilibrium stationary states and approaches to such states, systems with multiple stationary states, stability and equi-stability conditions, reaction diffusion systems, transport properties, and electrochemical systems. The theoretical treatment is complemented by experimental results to substantiate the formulation.

From the reviews:
"Generalizing thermodynamics to treat ... nonequilibrium situations is the subject matter of `Thermodynamics and Fluctuations far from Equilibrium,' by John Ross. Because nonequilibrium thermodynamics lies at the heart of many diverse real processes, the book's subject matter should prove useful to a wide audience including, among others, physicists, chemists, biologists, and engineers. ... This book is a welcome contribution to the topic." (Raymond Kapral, Chemical and Engineering News, Vol. 86 (36), 2008)
