The statistical thermodynamics of equilibrium by
Laszlo Tisza(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A statistical thermodynamics is developed in terms of extensive variables (additive invariants) distributed over a cellular division in space. In general, this distribution is governed by randomness and by correlations. The present theory, however, deals explicitly only with randomness, although correlations are implicit in the socalled fixed variables of the system. Because of this restriction, the theory is valid only for the fluctuations of coupled systems that have reached their equilibrium; hence we call it the statistical thermodynamics of equilibrium, briefly STE. A set of postulates is advanced, the essence of which is the requirement that distribution functions (df) exist for two basic coupling situations. It is implicit that the system has a memoryloss mechanism; and the df does not depend on past history (ergodic property). Such qualitative assumptions are sufficient to derive the Gibbsian df's in their quantitative form. These df's describe the coupling of finite systems with infinite environments and can be used to analyze typical situations of measurement by the methods of mathematical statistics. The present point of view sheds some new light on the the ergodic problem and on the role of Nernst's law in completing the the definition of thermodynamic equilibrium. (Author)

Pauli algebra and the restricted Lorentz group by
Laszlo Tisza(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The structure of the Pauli algebra of 2 x 2 matrices is studied by a combination of standard algebraic techniques with those of complex quaternions. The presentation is selfcontained and results in a calculus that is a connecting link between elementary vector calculus and spinor calculus. The formalism is applied to the parametrization of a homogeneous restricted Lorentz group. The structure of this group becomes more transparent in this treatment than in the usual tensoral method.

The Conceptual structure of physics by
Laszlo Tisza(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The systematization of the theories of physics can be attempted along two different lines. A classification is based either on the logical conceptual structure or follows the pattern of classification of the objects that are of principle interest in the theory. This article fleshes out these distinctions

ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF ELECTRODYNAMICS by
Laszlo Tisza(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper is the first in a series in which electrodynamics is developed from the ground up. The electromagnetic field is defined in terms of an infinitesimal active Lorentz transformation that alters the fourmomentum of a charged structureless 'test particle'. The Lorentz transformations are parameterized in terms of the Pauli algebra formalism developed by Tisza and Whitney. Comparison with the Lorentz force equation yields the result that the magnetic field manifests itself in a rotation of the particle momentum, the angular velocity of which is the cyclotron frequency; the electric field is in a similar relation to the hyperbolic angular velocity associated with the active Lorentz transformation describing the 'boost'. The Maxwell equations are obtained from the usual requirement of relativistic invariance. (Author)

Pauli algebra and the structure of lorentz group(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The set of twobytwo complex matrices, called the Pauli algebra, is developed systematically for a variety of applications. In addition to the usual concepts, the authors discuss matrices which are normal (as a generalization of unitary or Hermitian), introduce the concept of complex matrix axis, and provide a socalled polar decomposition for any nonsingular matrix. As a first application, they discuss the homogeneous restricted Lorentz group. The parametrization here advanced for unimodular twobytwo matrices provides directly the geometrical meaning of the Lorentz transformation induced by any such matrix. The discussion is exhaustive and includes matrices which induce the socalled exceptional Lorentz transformations. (Author)
