Energodynamics. Part 7. Afteword, Contents and References.

Authors: Etkin V.A.
Comments: 22 Pages.

In the conclusion it is shown, that energodynamic approach allowed not only to receive variety of not trivial consequences, but also to solve a number of new problems such as the elaboration of the theory of energy conversion process similarity, the theory of engineering system productivity, the real gas mixing theory and the theory of biological system self-organization. Affirms, that energodynamics is the new effective tool of the analysis of modern physics problems.

Energodynamics. Part 6. Elements of the Energodynamic Theory of Evolution

Authors: Etkin V.A.
Comments: 50 Pages.

In this part given evidences major advantages of the energy (non-entropy) criteria of evolution, which allow following the evolution of each degree of freedom or each part of the system separately. It is shown that “order” arises not from ”chaos”, but due to “disordering” in the system as a whole, which is in absolute compliance with the 2nd law of thermodynamics.

When is Information Erasure Necessary Between Successive Thermodynamic Cycles ?

Authors: François Barriquand
Comments: 8 Pages.

A modified version of Leo Szilard's 1929 thought-experiment is considered, which allows one to show that the iteration of some specially conceived thermodynamic “cycles” does not require any costly memory erasure. These thermodynamic cycles can be easily examined from either a classical or a quantum point of view. Although they differ randomly from each other in certain aspects, their remarkable energy balance remains systematically constant. Similar cycles can prove useful for lowering the theoretical cost of memory erasure in computers.
