In this work we show that it is possible to obtain a generalized statistical mechanics (thermostatistics) based on Renyi entropy, to be maximized with adequate constraints. The equilibrium probability distribution thus obtained has a very interesting property. Indeed, it reminds us the statistical distribution proposed by Tsallis, known to conveniently describe a variety of phenomena in nonextensive systems. Moreover, some examples are worked out in order to illustrate the main features of the… CONTINUE READING
