**About this book :- **

**Thermodynamics of Irreversible Processes ** written by
** Bernard H Lavenda **.

This book giving a clear exposition of the thermodynamic formalism applicable to nonlinear thermodynamic processes at a mathematical level, accessible to physicists and to theoretically inclined biologists and chemists. This book attempts to fill this need by making a definite statement in regard to the present-day status oflinear and nonlinear thermodynamics.

For the past two decades, two schools of non-equilibrium thermodynamics have dominated the literature: the school of 'rational' thermodynamics of Coleman and co-workers and the school of'generalised' thermodynamics that is associated with the names of Glansdorff and Prigogine. Although both these schools praise themselves for their all-embracing coverage of the field, The author have never seen 'generalised' thermodynamics applied to elastic materials with memory, nor have author seen 'rational' thermodynamics used in the analysis of chemical instabilities. The apparent incompatibility of the theories may bewilder the reader who wants to understand what non-equilibrium thermodynamics is all about.

**About Author :- **

The author **Bernard Howard Lavenda **(born 1945) is a retired professor of chemical physics at the University of Camerino and expert on irreversible thermodynamics. He has contributed to many areas of physics, including that of Brownian motion, and in the establishment of the statistical basis of thermodynamics, and non-Euclidean geometrical theories of relativity. He was the scientific coordinator of the "European Thermodynamics Network" in the European Commission Program of Human Capital and Mobility. He was also a proponent for the establishment of, and scientific director of, a National (Italian) Centre for Thermodynamics, and has acted as scientific consultant to companies such as the ENI Group, where he helped to found TEMA, a consulting firm for SNAM Progetti, ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and the Environment), and the Solar Energy Research Institute in Golden, Colorado. He has had over 130 scientific papers published in international journals, some critical of the new fashions and modes in theoretical physics.

Professor Lavenda currently lives in Trevignano Romano near Rome, is married with two adult children and two grandchildren, for whom his textbook "A New Perspective on Thermodynamics" is dedicated.
