Milivoje M. Kostic, professor emeritus in the NIU’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, recently was appointed editor-in-chief of the thermodynamics section of the Entropy journal.

Kostic served as a guest editor for two Entropy special issues in 2013 and 2015.

Entropy is a monthly, peer-reviewed, open access, scientific journal covering research on all aspects of entropy and information theory. The journal publishes original research articles, communications, review articles, concept papers and more.

Since Entropy became a mainstream, interdisciplinary  journal at the end of 2015, it has diversified in several sections, which also include statistical mechanics, information theory, astrophysics and cosmology, quantum information and complexity.

Thermodynamics is a science of energy and entropy, considered by many to be among the most fundamental sciences. It is a branch of physics that studies material properties and processes with regard to relationships between all forms of energies that ultimately dissipate into heat and generate entropy.

Kostic retired from his regular NIU duties in 2014 to pursue his scholarly work and research.
