This two-volume work gives the first detailed coherent treatment of a relatively young branch of statistical physics - nonlinear nonequilibrium and fluctuational­ dissipative thermodynamics. This area of research has taken shape rather recently: its de<_elopment20_began20_in20_1959.20_the20_earlier20_theory20_-20_linear20_nonequilibrium20_therc2ad_20_modynamics20_-20_is20_in20_principle20_a20_simple20_special20_case20_of20_the20_new20_theory.20_despite20_the20_fact20_that20_the20_title20_of20_the20_book20_includes20_the20_word20_27_27_nonlinear27_27_2c_20_it20_also20_covers20_the20_results20_of20_linear20_nonequilibrium20_thermodynamics.20_the20_presentation20_of20_the20_linear20_and20_nonlinear20_theories20_is20_done20_within20_a20_common20_theoretical20_framework20_that20_is20_not20_subject20_to20_the20_linearity20_condition.20_the20_author20_hopes20_that20_the20_reader20_will20_perceive20_the20_intrinsic20_unjty20_of20_this20_disc2ad_20_cipline2c_20_the20_uniformity20_and20_generality20_of20_its20_constituent20_parts.20_this20_theory20_has20_a20_wide20_variety20_of20_applications20_in20_various20_domains20_of20_physics20_and20_physical20_chemistry2c_20_enabling20_one20_to20_calculate20_thermal20_fluctuations20_in20_various20_nonlinear20_systems.20_the20_book20_is20_divided20_into20_two20_volumes.20_fluctuation-dissipation20_theorems20_28_or20_relations29_20_of20_various20_types20_28_linear2c_20_quadratic20_and20_cubic2c_20_classical20_and20_quantum29_20_are20_considered20_in20_the20_first20_volume.20_there20_one20_encounters20_the20_markov20_and20_non-markov20_fluctuation-dissipation20_theorems20_28_fdts29_2c_20_theorems20_of20_the20_first2c_20_second20_and20_third20_kinds.20_nonlinear20_fdts20_are20_less20_known20_than20_their20_linear20_counterparts.20_the20_present20_second20_volume20_of20_the20_book20_deals20_with20_the20_advanced20_theory.20_it20_consists20_of20_four20_chapters.20_the20_connection20_and20_interdependence20_of20_the20_material20_in20_the20_various20_chapters20_of20_both20_volumes20_are20_illustrated20_in20_the20_accompanying20_diagram. began="" in="" 1959.="" the="" earlier="" theory="" -="" linear="" nonequilibrium="" _therc2ad_="" modynamics="" is="" principle="" a="" simple="" special="" case="" of="" new="" theory.="" despite="" fact="" that="" title="" book="" includes="" word="" _27_27_nonlinear27_27_2c_="" it="" also="" covers="" results="" thermodynamics.="" presentation="" and="" nonlinear="" theories="" done="" within="" common="" theoretical="" framework="" not="" subject="" to="" linearity="" condition.="" author="" hopes="" reader="" will="" perceive="" intrinsic="" unjty="" this="" _disc2ad_="" _cipline2c_="" uniformity="" generality="" its="" constituent="" parts.="" has="" wide="" variety="" applications="" various="" domains="" physics="" physical="" _chemistry2c_="" enabling="" one="" calculate="" thermal="" fluctuations="" systems.="" divided="" into="" two="" volumes.="" fluctuation-dissipation="" theorems="" _28_or="" _relations29_="" types="" _28_linear2c_="" quadratic="" _cubic2c_="" classical="" _quantum29_="" are="" considered="" first="" volume.="" there="" encounters="" markov="" non-markov="" _28_fdts29_2c_="" _first2c_="" second="" third="" kinds.="" fdts="" less="" known="" than="" their="" counterparts.="" present="" volume="" deals="" with="" advanced="" consists="" four="" chapters.="" connection="" interdependence="" material="" chapters="" both="" volumes="" illustrated="" accompanying="">
