The entropy is usually related to the energy density of states. This relation is approximate for the finite systems (clusters) and an exact relation connects the entropy with the phase volume of the system. These relations give the same results only in the thermodynamic limit. We consider the microcanonical caloric curves determined via both the approximate… (More)
