It is unquestionable that the concept of entropy has played an essential role both in the physical and biological sciences. However, the entropy production, crucial to the second law, has also other features not clearly conceived. We all know that the main difficulty is concerned with its quantification in non-equilibrium processes and consequently its… (More)

Critical phenomena in non-equilibrium systems have been studied by means of a wide variety of theoretical and experimental approaches. Mode-coupling, renormalization group, complex Lie algebras and diagrammatic techniques are some of the usual theoretical tools. Experimental studies include light and inelastic neutron scattering, X-ray photon correlation… (More)

In this work, we present a generalization of Zwanzig's protein unfolding analysis [Zwanzig, R., 1997. Two-state models of protein folding kinetics. Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 94, 148-150; Zwanzig, R., 1995. Simple model of protein folding kinetics. Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 92, 9801], in order to calculate the free energy change Delta(N)(D)F between the… (More)

Relativistic irreversible thermodynamics is reformulated following the conventional approach proposed by Meixner in the non-relativistic case. Clear separation between mechanical and non-mechanical energy fluxes is made. The resulting equations for the entropy production and the local internal energy have the same structure as the non-relativistic ones.… (More)

Jeans instability is derived for the case of a low density self-gravitating gas beyond the Navier-Stokes equations. The Jeans instability criterium is shown to depend on a Burnett coefficient if the formalism is taken up to fourth order in the wave number. It is also shown that previously known viscosity corrections to the Jeans wave-number are enhanced if… (More)

In this work, we derive an analytical expression for the relaxation time tau as a function of temperature T for myoglobin protein (Mb, PDB:1MBN) in the high temperature limit (T>T(g)=200K). The method is based on a modified version of the Adam-Gibbs theory (AG theory) for the glass transition in supercooled liquids and an implementation of differential… (More)

In this paper we calculate the Rayleigh-Brillouin spectrum for a relativistic simple fluid according to three different versions available for a relativistic approach to nonequilibrium thermodynamics. An outcome of these calculations is that Eckart's version predicts that such spectrum does not exist. This provides an argument to question its validity. The… (More)

In this work we study the properties of a relativistic mixture of two nonreacting dilute species in thermal local equilibrium. Following the conventional ideas in kinetic theory, we use the concept of chaotic velocity. In particular, we address the nature of the density, or pressure gradient term that arises in the solution of the linearized Boltzmann… (More)

The exact expression of the one-dimensional Boltzmann multiple-scattering coefficients, for the passage of particles through a slab of a given material, is obtained in terms of the single-scattering cross section of the material, including absorption. The remarkable feature of the result is that for multiple scattering in a metal, free from absorption, one… (More)

In this work we show that moment methods devised to solve the Boltzmann kinetic equation for a simple gas exhibit some inconsistencies. This puzzle, which also appears for the Chapman-Enskog method, is solved resorting to a perturbative expansion in the Knudsen number, thus allowing for a clear way to arrive at a closure condition.
