LeChatelier Dynamics

Dynamics of the relaxation of a perturbed thermodynamic system to equilibrium is determined by the generalized eigenvalue equation (K̃ + λS)yβ = 0. Here S αβ is a matrix of linear response coefficients and K̃ is a matrix of kinetic coefficients. We describe LeChatelier’s Principle and both its static and dynamical symmetries, and treat cases in which there… CONTINUE READING
