The Third Law of Thermodynamics and the Low Temperature Properties of Disordered Solids

Abstract

It is shown that if the entropy can be derived from a restricted or unrestricted partition function both the second and the third law of thermodynamics hold. The consequences of this result for the low temperature behavior of solids are discussed. Moreover it is proposed that 379 leading term of the entropy of disordered solids at low temperatures is 'LT… (More)
