DISSIPAUVE STRUCTURES:ITS APPLICATIONS AND REVIEWS IN GEOLOGY
Wu Fuyuan Lin Qiang(.Department of Geology)
The studies of nonequilibrium thermodynamic show that a far from equilibrium system behaves differently from that of equilibrium or near equilibrium states because of the effects of nonlinear fluctuations. At present,the theory of dissipative structures has been applied to variors aspects of geology. According to this theory, a lot of geological phenomena can be explained accurately.In this paper,the authors have reviewed the producing and existing conditions for dissipative structures,an explanation of how to use it in geology also been given.
