Thermodynamic restrictions on thermoelectric, thermomagnetic and galvanomagnetic coefficients

  • Rinaldo Borghesani
  • Angelo Morro


All the consequences of the Clausius-Duhem nequality on thermoelectric, thermomagnetic and galvanomagnetic ffects are examined within the framework of a fourth-order heory developed in a previous paper. Besides the classical results, ome new conditions are derived and discussed.

Gli autori esaminano tutte le conseguenze della isuguaglianza di Clausius-Dubem sugli effetti termoelettrici, rmomagnetici e galvanomagnetici nell'ambito di una teoria al narto ordine sviluppata in un lavoro precedente. Si ritrovano i isultati classici e, nel contempo, vengono dedotte e discusse talune hove condizioni.
