New paper on the entropy production in shock waves

The paper entitled Theory and simulation of shock waves: Entropy production and energy conversion has been published in Phys. Rev. E. In the paper, we have investigated shock waves by use of nonequilibrium thermodynamics and nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations. We have also considered ...
