Entropy: Thermodynamics – Energy – Environment – Economy

Entropie : thermodynamique – énergie – environnement – économie




Entropie - ISSN 2634-1476 - © ISTE Ltd

Aims and scope

Objectifs de la revue

In 1965, the first edition of the journal Entropie announced that thermodynamics was the basis for many industrial applications, but also for advanced techniques (aerospace, particle and universe physics, metrology). It is a science of energy and entropy, a branch that studies the properties of materials and fluids, conversion processes.

 

But since then, it has also become clear that thermodynamics and energy have a major role in the living world and its evolution. This aspect is therefore an integral part of the themes of this journal, as well as the relationship with the environment and the economy: are we not talking about thermo-economics, climate change with the temperature drift, a thermodynamic notion if ever there was one?

 

In summary, the "new edition" of Entropie confirms the previous major fundamental and applied themes, but also opens up to various everyday applications in our societies, and offers new sections on the living world, on the economy (thermo-economics) and the environment through a systemic approach.

Le premier éditorial de la revue Entropie annonçait, en 1965, que la thermodynamique est à la base de nombreuses applications industrielles, mais aussi de techniques de pointe (aérospatial, physique des particules et de l’univers, métrologie). Elle est une science de l’énergie et de l’entropie, branche qui étudie les propriétés des matériaux et des fluides, les processus de conversion.

 

Mais depuis lors, il est aussi apparu que la thermodynamique et l’énergie avait un rôle majeur dans le monde du vivant et de son évolution. Cet aspect fait donc partie intégrante des thèmes de la revue, de même que la relation à l’environnement et l’économie : ne parle-t-on pas de thermo économie, de changement climatique avec la dérive en température, notion thermodynamique s’il en est.

 

En résumé, la « nouvelle édition » d’Entropie confirme les thèmes majeurs antérieurs fondamentaux et appliqués, mais y ajoute une ouverture sur des applications diffuses de tous les jours dans nos sociétés, et de nouvelles rubriques du côté du monde du vivant, puis de l’économie (thermo-économie) et de l’environnement par une approche systémique.
