@article{Jizba2016TsallisTA, title={Tsallis thermostatics as a statistical physics of random chains.}, author={Petr Jizba and Jan O. Korbel and V{\'a}clav Zatloukal}, journal={Physical review. E}, year={2016}, volume={95 2-1}, pages={ 022103 } }

In this paper we point out that the generalized statistics of Tsallis-Havrda-Charvát can be conveniently used as a conceptual framework for statistical treatment of random chains. In particular, we use the path-integral approach to show that the ensuing partition function can be identified with the partition function of a fluctuating oriented random loop of arbitrary length and shape in a background scalar potential. To put some meat on the bare bones, we illustrate this with two statistical…

It is shown that a wide class of systems with “surface-dominant” statistics might in fact require generalized entropies, including self-organized critical systems such as sandpiles, anomalous diffusion, and systems with topological defects such as vortices, domains, or instantons.
