Statistical Mechanics of Nonequilibrium Liquids
by Denis J. Evans, Gary P. Morriss
Publisher: ANU E Press 2007
Number of pages: 318
Designed for both researchers in the field and graduate students of physics, this book charts the development and theoretical analysis of molecular dynamics as applied to equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems. It connects molecular dynamics simulation with the mathematical theory to understand non-equilibrium steady states.

Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.

Basic principles are examined: the laws of thermodynamics and the concepts of temperature, work, heat, and entropy. Postulates of classical statistical mechanics, microcanonical, canonical, and grand canonical distributions; lattice vibrations; etc.
