With the use of a quantity normally scaled in multifractals, a generalized form is postulated for entropy, namelySq ≡k [1 – ∑i=1W piq]/(q-1), whereq∈ℝ characterizes the generalization andpi are the probabilities associated withW (microscopic) configurations (W∈ℕ). The main properties associated with this entropy are established, particularly those corresponding to the microcanonical and canonical ensembles. The Boltzmann-Gibbs statistics is recovered as theq→1 limit. 

On one-parameter-dependent generalizations of Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics

There exists an infinite set of entropies, with similar properties, that reduce in a common limit to the Boltzmann-Shannon form and the probabilities for the microcanonical ensemble and for the canonical ensemble are obtained.

Nonextensive statistical mechanics and high energy physics

The use of the celebrated Boltzmann-Gibbs entropy and statistical mechanics is justified for ergodic-like systems. In contrast, complex systems typically require more powerful theories. We will

Generalized Additive Entropies in Fully Developed Turbulence

We explore a possible application of the additive generalization of the Boltzmann-Gibbs-Shannon entropy proposed in [A.N. Gorban, I.V. Karlin, Phys. Rev. E, 67:016104 (2003)] to fully developed
