DescriptionAbstract
A
small
army
of
physicists
,
chemists
,
mathematicians
, and
engineers
has
joined
forces
to
attack
a
classic
problem
, the "
reversibility
paradox
", with
modern
tools
. This
book
describes
their
work
from the
perspective
of
computer
simulation
,
emphasizing
the
authors
'
approach
to the
problem
of
understanding
the
compatibility
, and
even
inevitability
, of the
irreversible
second
law
of
thermodynamics
with an
underlying
timereversible
mechanics
.
Computer
simulation
has
made
it
possible
to
probe
reversibility
from a
variety
of
directions
and "
chaos
theory
" or "
nonlinear
dynamics
" has
supplied
a
useful
vocabulary
and a
set
of
concepts
,
which
allow
a
fuller
explanation
of
irreversibility
than that
available
to
Boltzmann
or to
Green
,
Kubo
and
Onsager
.
Clear
illustration
of
concepts
is
emphasized
throughout
, and
reinforced
with a
glossary
of
technical
terms
from the
specialized
fields
which
have been
combined
here to
focus
on a
common
theme
. The
book
begins
with a
discussion
,
contrasting
the
idealized
reversibility
of
basic
physics
against
the
pragmatic
irreversibility
of
real
life
.
Computer
models
, and
simulation
, are
next
discussed
and
illustrated
.
Simulations
provide
the
means
to
assimilate
concepts
through
workedout
examples
.
Stateoftheart
analyses
, from the
point
of
view
of
dynamical
systems
, are
applied
to
manybody
examples
from
nonequilibrium
molecular
dynamics
and to
chaotic
irreversible
flows
from
finitedifference
,
finiteelement
, and
particlebased
continuum
simulations
.
Two
necessary
concepts
from
dynamicalsystems
theory

fractals
and
Lyapunov
instability

are
fundamental
to the
approach
.
Undergraduatelevel
physics
,
calculus
, and
ordinary
differential
equations
are
sufficient
background
for a
full
appreciation
of this
book
,
which
is
intended
for
advanced
undergraduates
,
graduates
, and
research
workers
. The
generous
assortment
of
examples
worked
out
in the
text
will
stimulate
readers
to
explore
the
rich
and
fruitful
field
of
study
which
links
fundamental
reversible
laws
of
physics
to the
irreversibility
surrounding
us
all
. This
expanded
edition
stresses
and
illustrates
computer
algorithms
with
many
new
workedout
examples
, and
includes
considerable
new
material
on
shockwaves
,
Lyapunov
instability
and
fluctuations
.
