Signe Kjelstrup (previously Kjelstrup Ratkje) has been a professor of physical chemistry at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway since 1985. Her early works in irreversible thermodynamics concern electro chemical systems. Since 1995 she has also studied entropy production minimisation in process equipment. She is an honorary doctor of the University of North East China, and has also taught irreversible thermodynamics in Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. Her first book on irreversible thermodynamics was coauthored with Katrine Seip Forland. It was first printed by Wiley in 1988 and 1994, is now being reprinted into Japanese (1994) and Chinese (2001). Her homepage gives links to updated news on the book, and full solutions to exercises for downloading.
Dick Bedeaux has been professor of physical chemistry at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, since 1984. He extended the theory of irreversible thermodynamics to the description of heat, mass and charge transport along, into and through boundary layers. More recently he worked on the description of curved surfaces in the context of equilibrium thermodynamics. Dick Bedeaux has co-authored the book "Optical Properties of Surfaces" with Jan Vlieger. The book is now being printed by the Imperial College Press, London
