More > ingredients. Examples are given to demonstrate that non-equilibrium systems of distinguishable particles and irreversible processes are due to the non-metrizable features of the Kolmogorov-Cartan T0 topology. The problem of incorporating indistinguishable objects (statistical wave-diffusion distributions)into a topological perspective of Thermodynamics is accomplished by using differential form densities and Not-T0 topologies, without separation axioms. Homotopic processes on the differential form densities describe complex diffusion equations, such as the wave equation, the diffusion equation, the Landau-Ginsburg equations, the Schroedinger equation, and many others.< Less

More > a plasma, and to decide if certain processes applied to such systems are thermodynamnically irreversible or not. The methods, based on topologies whose ingredients are exterior differential forms, are applicable to sets of distinguishable particles. Several fundamental and new topological features (especially that of Topological Torsion and Topological Spin) of non-equilibrium electromagnetic systems are deduced and lead to the design of new devices and processes, and the creation of metastable plasma states far from equilibrium.< Less

More > particles and their evolution by means of dissipative irreversible processes. Such methods are universal and apply to systems from the microscale to the cosmological scale. This volume uses topological techniques to describe persistent wakes and other topologically coherent but deformable strutures in fluids as thermodynamic states far from equilibrium and of Pfaff Topological dimension 3. The last part of the book is devoted to an explanation of Turbulence in terms of continuous, but irreversible, topological evolution in a domain of Pfaff Topological dimension 4.< Less
