This is a graduate textbook describing atomic-level kinetics (mechanisms and rates) of thermal energy storage; transport (conduction, convection, and radiation); and transformation (various energy conversions) by principal energy carriers. These carriers are: phonon (lattice vibration wave also treated as quasi-particle), electron (as classical or quantum entity), fluid particle (classical particle with quantum features), and photon (classical electromagnetic wave also as quasi-particle). The approach combines the fundamentals of the following fields: molecular orbitals-potentials, statistical thermodynamics, computational molecular dynamics, quantum energy states, transport theories, solid-state and fluid-state physics, and quantum optics. These are rationally connected to atomic-level heat transfer and thermal energy conversion. This textbook presents a unified theory, over fine-structure/molecular-dynamics/Boltzmann/macroscopic length and time scales, of heat transfer kinetics in terms of transition rates and relaxation times, and modern applications, including nano- and microscale size effects. Numerous examples, illustrations, and homework problems with answers enhance learning.

Product Description: This much-cited thesis by J. D. van der Waals, the recipient of the 1910 Nobel Prize in physics, is accompanied by an introductory essay by J. S. Rowlinson and another work by van der Waals on the theory of liquid mixtures. 1988 edition.
Product Description: Condensation takes place in many fields where heat transfer processes involving phase change occur. These include refrigeration plants, sugar-refinery evaporators and air conditioning systems. Enhancement of condensation is important when thermal resistance on the condensation side is commensurate to or greater than the thermal resistance of the heat transfer wall and on the cooling side...read more (view table of contents, read Amazon.com's description)

Product Description: The centre-piece of this book is an English translation of the Leiden thesis of 1873 of J.D. van der Waals, of which the original version must be the most cited and least read of any thesis in physical science. In an introductory essay the editor has put this work in the context of its time and explained why it is still of value to physicists and chemists working in statistical mechanics, on phase transitions and on the properties of liquids...read more
