SUNY Poly Collaborative Research by Dr. Carlo Cafaro published in Physica A
Dr. Carlo Cafaro, SUNY Poly applied mathematics assistant professor, collaborated with Dr. Orlando Luongo (University of Camerino-Italy), Dr. Stefano Mancini (University of Camerino-Italy), and Dr. Hernando Quevedo (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico-Mexico) on a work published in Physica A.
Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications is a journal recognized by the European Physical Society and publishes research in the field of statistical mechanics and its applications.
The research paper, “Thermodynamic length, geometric efficiency and Legendre invariance,” proposes an intuitive and original geometric measure capable of quantifying deviations from ideality of real gases. This measure is constructed by means of thermodynamic lengths defined within the frameworks of both thermodynamic geometry and geometrothermodynamics.
