Order out of chaos : man's new dialogue with nature by I Prigogine( Book )

76 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 1,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ilya Prigogine, winner of the Nobel Prize in 1977 for his work on the thermodynamics of nonequilibrium systems, makes his ideas accessible to a wide audience in this astonishing book which has engendered massive debate on the continent and in America. He and his colleague Isabelle Stangers show how the two great themes of classical science, order and chaos, which co-existed uneasily for centuries, are being reconciled in a new and unexpected synthesis: 'We know now that nonequilibrium, the flow of matter and energy, may be a source of order. We have a feeling of great intellectual excitement: we begin to have a glimpse of the road that leads from being to becoming.'
Modern thermodynamics : from heat engines to dissipative structures by Dilip Kondepudi( )

57 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A truly modern approach to thermodynamics, this volume presents it as a science of irreversible processes whilst avoiding dividing the subject into equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics. It provides an extensive range of applications

For Ilya Prigogine by Stuart Alan Rice( )

13 editions published between 1967 and 1978 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring complexity : an introduction by G Nicolis( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring Complexity: An introduction is an intriguing exploration into the new science of complexity. This provocative book surveys the wide range of complex phenomena arising in the framework of physicochemical and biological systems and in the global environment, defining the elements of a new scientific vocabulary - the vocabulary of complexity - and elaborating the tools for analyzing these problems efficiently. It breaks disciplinary barriers to consider issues beyond the realm of traditional physical science, including the dynamics of climatic change and the behaviour of social insects and human populations. Exploring Complexity incorporates many new discussions on topics such as chaos, attractors, and fractals. The authors offer innovative views on recent research into nonlinear systems, complexity, and chaos that might further challenge the laws of science
Non-equilibrium statistical mechanics by I Prigogine( Book )

32 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ilya Prigogine won the 1977 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his contributions to non-equilibrium thermodynamics. This groundbreaking 1962 monograph, written for researchers and graduate students in this field, was his first book-length contribution to this subject. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in physics and chemistry, the treatment begins with examinations of the Liouville equation, anharmonic solids, and Brownian motion. Subsequent chapters explore weakly coupled gases, scattering theory and short-range forces, distribution functions and their diagrammatic representation, the time dependence of diagrams, the approach to equilibrium in ionized gases, and statistical hydrodynamics. Additional topics include general kinetic equations, general H-theorem, quantum mechanics, and irreversibility and invariants of motion. Appendices, a bibliography, list of symbols, and an index conclude the text

La nouvelle alliance : métamorphose de la science by I Prigogine( Book )

71 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La science classique s'est trouvée associée à un désenchantement du monde. C'est la leçon que Jacques Monod entendait tirer des progrès de la biologie : "L'ancienne alliance est rompue. L'homme sait enfin qu'il est seul dans l'immensité indifférente de l'Univers d'où il a émergé par hasard." Notre science n'est plus ce savoir classique, nous pouvons déchiffrer le récit d'une "nouvelle alliance". Loin de l'exclure du monde qu'elle décrit, la science retrouve comme un problème l'appartenance de l'homme à ce monde. Les théories scientifiques ne peuvent plus supposer la possibilité d'un savoir omniscient : nous lisons, jusque dans leurs principes, les traces d'une activité d'exploration au sein d'une nature en évolution
