Entropy-related principles for non-equilibrium systems : theoretical foundations and applications to ecology and fluid dynamics

Bertram, Jason

Description

The standard contemporary approaches to modelling non-equilibrium, many-body phenomena are to use detailed computational models or to analyse large datasets. Here we explore an alternative approach: the use of simple idealized models based on the novel application of statistical mechanics in a non-equilibrium, many-body setting. This thesis has two main elements. The first element is the development of idealized statistical mechanics models to address particular topics in physics and biology....[Show more]
