Thermodynamic facts shape the root for separation techniques utilized in diversified fields of technological know-how and undefined, from distinctiveness chemical compounds to meals and prescribed drugs. One drawback to constructing new creation approaches, items, or optimization is the shortcoming, or inaccessibility, of experimental information regarding section equilibrium.

Quantum Entropies: Dynamics, Information and Complexity

The prime topic of the publication is complexity in quantum dynamics. This factor is addressed by way of comparability with the classical ergodic, info and algorithmic complexity theories. Of specific significance is the proposal of Kolmogorov-Sinai dynamical entropy and of its inequivalent quantum extensions formulated through Connes, Narnhofer and Thirring on one hand and Alicki and Fannes at the different.
