Clausius vs. Boltzmann-Gibbs entropies

  title={Clausius vs. Boltzmann-Gibbs entropies},
  author={Thomas Oikonomou},
In this work, we demonstrate the inappropriateness of the Boltzmann-Gibbs log-formulation of the physical Clausius entropy $S$ in connecting thermodynamics and phase space statistics. To achieve our goal, we study thermodynamically the simple case of ideal gases embedded in a finite heat bath and compare the derived equations with the phase space statistical ones obtained within the canonical ensemble. We then show that the results of the aforementioned approaches contradict to each other even…

Clausius versus Sackur–Tetrode entropies
Based on the property of extensivity (mathematically, homogeneity of first degree), we derive in a mathematically consistent manner the explicit expressions of the chemical potential and the Clausius
The Gibbs paradox and the distinguishability of identical particles
Identical classical particles are distinguishable. This distinguishability affects the number of ways W a macrostate can be realized on the microlevel, and from the relation S=k ln W leads to a
