Abstract:

An attempt is made to generalize Onsagers theory to nonlinear processes. The statistical point of view is modified so that the principles of irreversible thermodynamics follow from it quite naturally, so that the fundamental theorems of reversible thermodynamics can be deduced from them as if they were special cases. It was shown that both Onsagers relations and their generalization readily follow from these considerations.
