This second volume of the two-part work on nonlinear nonequilibrium thermodynamics presents important theoretical aspects of the physics of nonlinear and open systems, covering both classical and quantum systems. Particular attention is focussed on the following topics: - Non-Markov generating equations: - Nonequilibrium open systems: - Kirchhoff fluctuation-dissipation relations: - Phase space projection methods. The book will be of particular interest to theoretical physicists but will also appeal to applied scientists who may simply utilize the results derived to handle a variety of interesting problems.
