Certain fluctuations in particle number, n, at fixed total energy, E, lead exactly to a cut-power law distribution in the one-particle energy, ω, via the induced fluctuations in the phase-space volume ratio, Ωn(E − ω)/Ωn(E) = (1 − ω/E). The only parameters are 1/T = 〈β〉 = 〈n〉/E and q = 1−1/〈n〉+∆n2/〈n〉2. For the binomial distribution of n one obtains q =(More)
We propose a novel first order, local equilibrium approach to special relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics. Using a particular separation of internal and flow energies we remove all known instabilities of the linear response approximation. This result provides a stable inclusion of heat conductivity into the description of first order viscous relativistic(More)
Existing models of competence development are characterised by a fixed sequence of stages of which assessment by others and following a fixed set of competence development activities are obligatory components. This paper shows that these models do not do justice to the large diversity of learning needs among lifelong learners. It then presents a model,(More)

Thermodynamics – contrary to its name – is not a dynamic theory. However, some relatively new developments, like finite time, endo-reversible or ordinary thermodynamics introduce time into thermostatics. In this framework the Second Law becomes a set of conditions ensuring the asymptotic stability of equilibrium. In this manuscript some examples are shown,(More)
