Maxwell's demon : entropy, information, computing by Harvey S Leff( )

22 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About 120 years ago, James Clerk Maxwell introduced his now legendary hypothetical "demon" as a challenge to the integrity of the second law of thermodynamics. Fascination with the demon persisted throughout the development of statistical and quantum physics, information theory, and computer science--and linkages have been established between Maxwell's demon and each of these disciplines. The demon's seductive quality makes it appealing to physical scientists, engineers, computer scientists, biologists, psychologists, and historians and philosophers of science. Until now its important source material has been scattered throughout diverse journals. This book brings under one cover twenty-five reprints, including seminal works by Maxwell and William Thomson; historical reviews by Martin Klein, Edward Daub, and Peter Heimann; information theoretic contributions by Leo Szilard, Leon Brillouin, Dennis Gabor, and Jerome Rothstein; and innovations by Rolf Landauer and Charles Bennett illustrating linkages with the limits of computation. An introductory chapter summarizes the demon's life, from Maxwell's illustration of the second law's statistical nature to the most recent "exorcism" of the demon based on a need periodically to erase its memory. An annotated chronological bibliography is included. Originally published in 1990. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Maxwell's demon 2 : entropy, classical and quantum information, computing by Harvey S Leff( )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 130 years ago, James Clerk Maxwell introduced his hypothetical "demon" as a challenge to the scope of the second law of thermodynamics. Fascination with the demon persisted throughout the development of statistical and quantum physics, information theory, and computer science, and links have been established between Maxwell's demon and each of these disciplines. The demon's seductive quality makes it appealing to physical scientists, engineers, computer scientists, biologists, psychologists, and historians and philosophers of science. Since the publication of Maxwell's Demon: Entropy, Information, Computing in 1990, Maxwell's demon has been the subject of renewed and increased interest by numerous researchers in the fields mentioned above. Updated and expanded, Maxwell's Demon 2: Entropy, Classical and Quantum Information, Computing retains many of the seminal papers that appeared in the first edition, including the original thoughts of James Clerk Maxwell and William Thomson; a historical review by Martin Klein; and key articles by Leo Szilard, Leon Brillouin, Rolf Landauer, and Charles Bennett that led to new branches of research on the demon. This second edition contains newer articles by Landauer, Bennett, and others, related to Landauer's principle; connections with quantum mechanics; algorithmic information; and the thermodynamics and limits of computation
Modern physics for scientists and engineers by Stephen T Thornton( Book )

39 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commonly asked questions in physics by Andrew F Rex( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covers a broad scope of subjects, from classical physics that goes back to the age of Newton to new ideas just formulated in the twenty-first century. The book highlights the core areas of physics that predate the twentieth century, including mechanics electromagnetism, optics, and thermodynamics. It also focuses on modern physics, covering quantum mechanics, atomic and nuclear physics, fundamental particles, and relativity
Essential college physics by Andrew F Rex( Book )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal ofEssential College Physics is to provide a text focused on essential principles-a shorter, more focused text that better addresses the learning needs of today's students while more effectively guiding them through the mastery of physics. Brevity does not need to come at the expense of student learning. This text is designed from the ground up to be concise and focused, resulting in a book that is less intimidating and easier to use, with well-coordinated explanations, art, worked examples, and end-of-chapter problems. It incorporates an overarching connected approach: connecting

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fully updated and expanded new edition continues to provide the most readable, concise, and easy-to-follow introduction to thermal physics. While maintaining the style of the original work, the book now covers statistical mechanics and incorporates worked examples systematically throughout the text
Physique moderne by Stephen T Thornton( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in French and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette introduction à la physique moderne (relativité et physique quantique) s'appuie sur une présentation historique pédagogique et documentée et offre plusieurs applications actuelles des notions présentées (cosmologie, physique des particules, supraconductivité), des exercices résolus en détail et des encadrés approfondissant certaines notions.--[Memento]
