1996 - Fellow of American Physical Society (APS) Citation For his contribution to the statistical physics and nonequilibrium thermodynamics of surfaces


What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

Dick Bedeaux mainly focuses on Thermodynamics, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Statistical physics, Classical mechanics and Condensed matter physics. As a part of the same scientific study, Dick Bedeaux usually deals with the Thermodynamics, concentrating on Molecular dynamics and frequently concerns with Fick's laws of diffusion. His Non-equilibrium thermodynamics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Condensation, Mass transfer, Entropy production and Conservation law.

His studies deal with areas such as Particle, Scale, Inverse, Dielectric response and Enthalpy as well as Statistical physics. His Classical mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fluid parcel, Fluid mechanics, Gaussian curvature, Incompressible flow and Laplace operator. His Condensed matter physics research integrates issues from Geometry, Charge, Wave equation, Dielectric and Surface roughness.

His most cited work include:

  • A generalization of Faxén's theorem to nonsteady motion of a sphere through an incompressible fluid in arbitrary flow (224 citations)
  • Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics of Heterogeneous Systems (220 citations)
  • Boundary conditions and non-equilibrium thermodynamics (207 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Dick Bedeaux spends much of his time researching Thermodynamics, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Classical mechanics, Statistical physics and Mechanics. His Thermodynamics study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Molecular dynamics. His research in Non-equilibrium thermodynamics intersects with topics in Heat flux, Mesoscopic physics, Square, Condensation and Evaporation.

The concepts of his Classical mechanics study are interwoven with issues in Continuum, Boundary value problem and Brownian motion. His Statistical physics research includes elements of Surface and Nonlinear system. The Mechanics study which covers Porous medium that intersects with Flow.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Thermodynamics (48.60%)
  • Non-equilibrium thermodynamics (26.54%)
  • Classical mechanics (15.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Thermodynamics (48.60%)
  • Non-equilibrium thermodynamics (26.54%)
  • Mechanics (14.53%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary scientific interests are in Thermodynamics, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Mechanics, Statistical physics and Molecular dynamics. His Thermodynamics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mesoscopic physics, Chemical reaction and Phase. His research integrates issues of Law of mass action, Thermodynamic system, Square and Temperature gradient in his study of Non-equilibrium thermodynamics.

His Mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Entropy production, Capillary action, Porous medium and Entropy. He interconnects Inverse, Scale, Surface and Work in the investigation of issues within Statistical physics. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Molecular dynamics, focusing on Diffusion and, on occasion, Mole fraction.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Kirkwood–Buff Integrals for Finite Volumes (93 citations)
  • Calculating thermodynamic properties from fluctuations at small scales. (79 citations)
  • Thermodynamics of a small system in a μT reservoir (51 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Geometry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Thermodynamics, Statistical physics, Molecular dynamics, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics and Enthalpy. Much of his study explores Thermodynamics relationship to Order of magnitude. His Statistical physics research incorporates elements of Scale, Surface and Inverse.

His study in the fields of Molecular simulation under the domain of Molecular dynamics overlaps with other disciplines such as Ternary operation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Condensation, Nanoscopic scale, Evaporation and Entropy. He has included themes like Particle and Heat transfer in his Enthalpy study.
