Abstract From the equilibrium condition Î´S = 0 applied to an isolated thermodynamic system of electrically charged particles and the fundamental equation of thermodynamics (dU = TdS âˆ’ (f Â· dr))â€¦ (More)

â€“ From the principle of maximum entropy for a closed system in thermal equilibrium, it is shown for the first instance, to exist a clear relation between total entropy S (in terms of arrangements ofâ€¦ (More)

We propose a new variational principle for out-of-equilibrium dynamic systems that are fundamentally based on the method of Lagrange multipliers applied to the total entropy of an ensemble ofâ€¦ (More)

We present a self-consistent two-dimensional fluid model of the temporal and spatial development of the One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDP). Continuity equations for electricallyâ€¦ (More)

We investigate the existence of electric field reversal in the negative glow of a dc discharge, its location, the width of the well trapping the electrons, the slow electrons scattering time, and theâ€¦ (More)

Classical mechanics, as commonly taught in engineering and science, are confined to the conventional Newtonian theory. But classical mechanics has not really changed in substance since Newtonâ€¦ (More)
