Abstract

In this chapter we present an overview of some applications of non-equilibrium thermodynamics to flowing superfluids, both in the laminar as in the turbulent regimes. Since the flowing behaviour of superfluids is especially surprising and challenging, and as it crucially depends on thermodynamical parameters, it is logical to include this topic in a book devoted to the special thermodynamic features of flowing fluids.
