ABSTRACT
Prigogine, Ilya (1917-) was a Russian-born Belgian theoretical chemist who received the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1977 for his contributions to nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Thermodynamics is the study of heat and other forms of energy. Equilibrium is a steady state in which such quantities as temperature and pressure remain constant. In nonequilibrium conditions, an external influence may cause these quantities to change.
