Transient relativistic thermodynamics and kinetic theory

- W. Israel, J. Stewart
- Physics
- 1 April 1979

Abstract The paper develops, from both the phenomenological and kinetic points of view, a generalized formulation of irreversible thermodynamics applicable to the description of thermal phenomena in… Expand

Singular hypersurfaces and thin shells in general relativity

- W. Israel
- Physics
- 1 July 1966

SummaryAn approach to shock waves, boundary surfaces and thin shells in general relativity is developed in which their histories are characterized in a purely geometrical way by the extrinsic… Expand

in 300 Years of Gravitation

- W. Israel
- Physics
- 1 July 1988

The invention relates to a novel filtering circuit whereby a phase detected output control signal is filtered and utilized to provide greater stability in a phase-locked loop. The filtering circuit… Expand

Event Horizons in Static Vacuum Space-Times

- W. Israel
- Physics
- 25 December 1967

The following theorem is established. Among all static, asymptotically flat vacuum space-times with closed simply connected equipotential surfaces ${g}_{00}=\mathrm{constant}$, the Schwarzschild… Expand

Nonstationary irreversible thermodynamics: A Causal relativistic theory

- W. Israel
- Physics
- 10 September 1976

Abstract Conventional theories of irreversible thermodynamics predict instantaneous propagation of thermal and viscous effects. This defect can be traced to the omission of terms quadratic in the… Expand

On transient relativistic thermodynamics and kinetic theory. Il

- W. Israel, J. Stewart
- PhysicsProceedings of the Royal Society of London. A…
- 19 February 1979

This paper, the sequel to Stewart (1977), discusses the relation between transient relativistic thermodynamics and kinetic theory in the formulation of Israel (1972, 1976) which differs… Expand

Covariant fluid mechanics and thermodynamics: An introduction

- W. Israel
- Physics
- 1989

These lectures are intended as a pedagogical introduction to the covariant formulation of nonequilibrium and statistical thermodynamics and kinetic theory. The various formulations of nonequilibrium… Expand
