By M. Rordam, E. Stormer

This EMS quantity contains elements, written via top scientists within the box of operator algebras and non-commutative geometry. the 1st half, written by way of M.Rordam, is on Elliott's category software for nuclear C*-algebras. The emphasis is at the paintings of Kirchberg and the mind-blowing effects by way of Kirchberg and Phillips giving a virtually whole class, when it comes to K-theoretic invariants, within the simply countless case. This a part of this system is defined with virtually complete proofs starting with Kirchberg's tensor product theorems and Kirchberg's embedding theorem for certain C*-algebras. The class of finite easy C*-algebras beginning with AF-algebras, and carrying on with with AT- and AH-algebras is roofed, yet quite often with out proofs. the second one half, written through E.Stormer, is a survey of the speculation of of noncommutative entropy of automorphisms of C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras from its initiation through Connes and Stormer in 1975 until 2001.

6. Van der Waals gases. The thermal equation of state for real gases was approximated by van der Waals in the well-known expression p+a N V 2 (V − bN ) = NRT, where a and b are positive constants, ﬁxed for each particular gas, which are, respectively, related to the attractive and repulsive intermolecular forces and are null for ideal gases. 4, show that the caloric equation of state U = U (T, V, N ) has the form U (T, V, N ) = Uid (T, N ) − a N2 , V with Uid (T, N ) is the internal energy for ideal gases.

Therefore, an increase of temperature at constant pressure will shift the reaction in the direction corresponding to endothermic reaction (rT,p < 0). This is in the direction in which heat is absorbed, thus opposing the increase of temperature. Similar results are obtained by varying the pressure: an increase of pressure at constant temperature will cause the reaction to progress in the direction leading to a diminution of volume, thus weakening the action of the external eﬀect. These are particular examples of the more general principle of Le Chatelier stating that any system in chemical equilibrium undergoes, under the eﬀect of external stimuli, a compensating change which will be always in the opposite direction.
