Synopses & Reviews
Temperature and heat, entropy and order or disorder are key classical concepts of physics. These are challenged by searching matter under extreme conditions, such as high (relativistic) energy, strong acceleration or gravitation, or unusual complexity due to long range correlations. In our quest for quark matter all these conditions might occur simultaneously. This book, strongly motivated by the authors' everyday research experiences in the field of high-energy heavy-ion collisions, aims to bundle these challenges to modern physics. The main topic is at the heart of thermodynamics --
Based on the authors' everyday research experiences in the field of high-energy heavy-ion collisions, this volume bundles temperature, heat, entropy and disorder into modern physics. The main focus is thermodynamics --
Physical bodies can be hot or cold, moving or standing,simple or complex.
