About this title


There is a wide variety of heterogeneous fluid systems that possess interphase surfaces. This monograph is devoted to pioneering studies in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of such systems. Starting from the Liouville equation, the equations of surface hydrodynamics are derived with allowance for discontinuities of thermodynamic parameters of interphase boundaries. Brownian motion of a large solid particle in a fluid and nucleation are treated as results of fluctuations of flows across particle surfaces. With the use of the Gibbs method, a shock wave in a gas is considered as a sort of an interphase surface, and the surface tension of a shock front is introduced for the first time.

From the Back Cover:

The general non equilibrium statistical approach, due to Zubarev, is presented briefly in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 is devoted to construction of an application of this approach to a statistical mechanical description of transport processes on a dividing surface between two immiscible fluids when singular densities of mass, and/or momentum, and/or energy are presented. In chapter 3 the shock wave in a gas is considered an interphase boundary of the gas-gas type. Chapters 4 and 5 fluctuations of flows of mass or momentum across the surfaces of sufficiently small liquid or solid particles, respectively, are discussed. Finally, chapter 6 discusses a generalization of the one-particle Brownian motion theory to many-particle situations, where the interparticle hydrodynamic ineraction are essential.
