Non-Linear, Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics

A branch of physics developed in the latter half of the twentieth century that deals with systems of particles that are far from the near-equilibrium conditions studied in classical thermodynamics and which are governed by complex, non-linear forces. Significant attempts have been made to extend this theory into the realm of living (self-replicating) organisms.
