The e-book goals to provide an summary of the former Sitges meetings, that have been held over the last 25 years, with distinct emphasis on themes regarding non-equilibrium phenomena. It comprises overview articles and articles facing new traits within the topic, written by means of scientists who've performed an immense function within the improvement of this quarter. The e-book is meant as a commemorative variation of the Sitges meetings. Graduate scholars of physics and researchers will locate this a stimulating account of the advance of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics within the final years, masking a large scope of issues: kinetic thought, hydrodynamics, fluctuation phenomena and stochastic procedures, rest phenomena, kinetics of part transitions, progress kinetics, and so forth.

This confirms very well the similarity of the cage diffusion processes in the two fluid systems. 11. Transport Coefficients One of the major questions of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics is the theoretical computation of the transport coefficients of dense fluids. For that, it is necessary to know what the basic mechanisms are of mass, momentum and energy transfer in a dense fluid. The translational and collisional transfer as incorporated in the Boltzmann and Enskog equations, respectively, are the classically known transfer mechanisms.

1cm[31]. In this case boundary and gravity effects have to be taken into account, which were neglected in the above mentioned calculations. The mode-mode coupling contributions to the dynamic structure factor SnReq(k,w) can then be many orders of magnitude ( ~ 107) larger than the local equilibrium contribution. As an illustrative example, SnReq(k,w) is sketched in fig. 3 for a stationary state, away frmn the Itayleigh-B6nard (R-B) instability, when tile fluid is heated from above. 3)[31,a2]. Near the R-B instability the analogue of critical opalescence can be observed in the micro-wave regime in that S~eq(k , w)is a Lorentzian of the form SnReq(k, w) "~ 1/[~-~(k)2+w2], where the line width goes to zero like ~ ( k ) and the height goes to infinity like 1 / ~ ( k ) 2 as the instability point is approached, with ~ ( k ) the eigenvalue of the critical mode [31).
