  • Two aspects are studied in this report. The first aspect is the prediction and evaluation of thermophysical data of fluids and fluid mixtures. Models will be constructed to calculate the transport properties of fluid mixtures in their dependence on size and mass of the constituent particles. The second aspect is the application of nonlinear evolution equations to energy related processes. It is expected that the remarkable progress in this field will have significant practical uses.
  • A new simple relation has been found, between the transport coefficients of a fluid, in particular the viscosity, and the maximum and minimum Lyapunov exponents of the fluid in a non-equilibrium stationary state. This relation holds arbitrarily far from equilibrium, as long as the transport coefficients themselves make sense. It is hoped that this new relation will provide new insight in the nature and properties of transport coefficients or, in general, in fluid behavior far from equilibrium, i.e., in the strongly non-linear regime.
  • Brief descriptions are given for three research areas: transport properties of multicomponent fluid mixtures, fluctuations in a Rayleigh-Benard cell, and light and neutron scattering of simple fluids. (WRF)
