This information approach is used to calculate the light-induced drift velocity. The computational results are in good...

    The generalized H theorem of Boltzmann for a multiple gas mixture is written as the law of increase of entropy for small deviations from equilibrium by largely following a method first introduced by Prigogine. It is shown that the local rate of entropy production for such a mixture is a...

    Density data for aqueous solutions of monohydric alcohols down to supercooling are presented and combined with data concerning viscosity of the same systems, and with available data on pure water. Two conceptually different families of longer-lived, high-connectivity H-bond structures can be...

    Generalized thermodynamics founded by Bearman–Kirkwood equations is considered. It is shown that the Prigogine theorem on the entropy production invariance also holds when inertia and local stresses contribute to the diffusion-dependent part of the dissipation function. A comparison with...

    An extended thermodynamics, originally a modification of rational thermodynamics, with nonclassical entropy flux, Js, is compared with early work based on the postulational structure of de Groot, with classical Js. Consistency between them and with physical and statistical models requires using...
