Download or read book entitled Fractal and Trans-scale Nature of Entropy by author: Diogo Queiros Conde which was release on 01 September 2018 and published by Iste Press - Elsevier with total page 150 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Fractal and Trans-scale Nature of Entropy: Towards a Geometrization of Thermodynamics develops a new vision for entropy in thermodynamics by proposing a new method to geometrize. It investigates how this approach can accommodate a large number of very different physical systems, going from combustion and turbulence towards cosmology. As an example, a simple interpretation of the Hawking entropy in black-hole physics is provided. In the life sciences, entropy appears as the driving element for the organization of systems. This book demonstrates this fact using simple pedagogical tools, thus showing that entropy cannot be interpreted as a basic measure of disorder. Presents the strong link between geometry and thermodynamics Offers an original understanding of entropy Explains how to visualize phenomena where thermodynamics and entropy are important in the optimization of thermal machines Explores entropy in thermodynamics through fractal geometry and trans-scale geometries
