Main Title: Irreversibility and Second Law
Author(s): Muschik, Wolfgang
Type: Article
Language Code: en
Abstract: According to M. Eigen there are two reasons for irreversibility: weak and strict temporality. Measures for irreversibility are defined by different formulations of the 2nd law which can be divided into two classes: the more general in time integrated formulations as Clausius' inequality and the more special in time local formulations as the non-negativity of the entropy production density. The logical relations between eight different formulations of the 2nd law are investigated and discussed.
