Flowline design and thermodynamic implications of the vector potential (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

The flowline design has been shown to be a powerful tool for nonimaging optics, utilizing a vector field analogy to describe the reasoning behind the various designing method. However, as a set of tools the vector analysis has not been fully explored, especially it vector potential, A, which has found its usage in modern physics. In this talk we will try to link the vector potential with the fundamental understanding of thermodynamics.
