Abstract The formalism of relativistic statistical mechanics, developed in previous papers, provides a very straightforward proof of the Lorentz invariance of the canonical equilibrium distribution function. This theorem automatically determines the Lorentz transformation law of the temperature and of the free energy, and hence of all the thermodynamic functions. The transformation rule for the internal energy is discussed in great detail. It is shown that for a system of finite size the energy… Expand
