Additional Information


Evolution is nature’s most fascinating process, the possibility given sufficient time to combine simple inorganic compounds to more and more complex biochemical compounds, which make up more and more complex organisms. It is therefore crucial in our effort to understand the evolution to see it from as many different angles as possible. This books draw an image of evolution from the thermodynamic viewpoint, which gives new and surprising insights into the processes and mechanisms that have driven evolution. This new thermodynamic interpretation has made it possible to quantify the various steps of evolution and to show that evolution has followed an exponential growth curve.

  • The first comprehensive thermodynamic interpretation and explanation of evolution
  • This thermodynamic interpretation makes it possible to quantify the various steps of evolution
  • This interpretation explains the wide spectrum of different mechanisms on which the evolution has been based
