Sengers Co-Authors Book on Hydrodynamic Fluctuations


Distinguished University Professor Emeritus and former ChBE Chair Jan V. Sengers has co-authored a book with Jose M. Ortiz de Zarate, Associate Professor, Applied Physics Department of the Complutense University in Madrid, Spain. Hydrodynamic Fluctuations in Fluids and Fluid Mixtures (Elsevier, 2006) is "the first comprehensive treatment of fluctuations in fluids and fluid mixtures that are brought out of equilibrium by a temperature or concentration gradient, but that are still in a quiescent state without macroscopic convection or turbulence." (Elsevier.)
