This article has been tagged since February 2008 Ice melting - a classic example of entropy increasing described in 1862 by Rudolf Clausius as an increase in the disgregation of the molecules of the body of ice. Entropy articles Introduction History Classical Statistical Entropy is a measure of the unavailability of a system ’s energy to do work It is a measure of the randomness of molecules in a system and is central to the second law of thermodynamics and the combined law of thermodynamics , which deal with physical processes and whether they occur spontaneously. Spontaneous changes , in isolated systems , occur with an increase in entropy. Spontaneous changes tend to smooth out differences in

Entropy and Disorder
If you assert that nature tends to take things from order to disorder and give an example or two, then you will get almost universal recognition and assent. It is a part of our common experience. Spend hours cleaning your desk, your basement, your attic, and it seems to spontaneously revert back to disorder and chaos before your eyes. So if you say that entropy is a measure of disorder, and that nature tends toward maximum entropy for any isolated system, then you do have some insight into the ideas of the second law of thermodynamics Some care must be taken about how you define "disorder" if you are going to use it to understand entropy. A more precise way to characterize entropy is to say that it is a measure of the "multiplicity" associated with the state of the objects. If a given state can be accomplished in many more ways, then it is more probabable than one which can be accomplished in only a few ways. When " throwing dice ", throwing a seven is more probable than a two because you can produce seven in six different ways and there is only one way to produce a two. So seven has a higher multiplicity than a two, and we could say that a seven represents higher "disorder" or higher entropy.

The law of entropy, or the second law of thermodynamics, along with the first law of thermodynamics comprise the most fundamental laws of physics.
Foundations of Physics, Life and Cognition: Basic Texts, Reviews, Research Material
The law of entropy , or the second law of thermodynamics , along with the first law of thermodynamics comprise the most fundamental laws of physics. Entropy (the subject of the second law) and energy (the subject of the first law) and their relationship are fundamental to an understanding not just of physics, but to life (biology, evolutionary theory, ecology) cognition (psychology) . According to the old view, the second law was viewed as a 'law of disorder'. The major revolution in the last decade is the recognition of the "law of maximum entropy production" or "MEP" and with it an expanded view of thermodynamics showing that the spontaneous production of order from disorder is the expected consequence of basic laws . This site provides basic texts, articles, links, and references that take the reader from the classical views of thermodynamics in simple terms, to today's new and richer understanding.

Entropy and the Laws of Thermodynamics
The principal energy laws that govern every organization are derived from two famous laws of thermodynamics. The second law, known as Carnot's principle, is controlled by the concept of entropy. Today the word entropy is as much a part of the language of the physical sciences as it is of the human sciences. Unfortunately, physicists, engineers, and sociologists use indiscriminately a number of terms that they take to be synonymous with entropy, such as disorder, probability, noise, random mixture, heat; or they use terms they consider synonymous with antientropy, such as information, neguentropy, complexity, organization, order, improbability. There are at least three ways of defining entropy:
  • in terms of thermodynamics (the science of heat), where the names of Mayer, Joule, Carnot, and Clausius (1865) are important;
  • in terms of statistical theory, which fosters the equivalence of entropy and disorder as a result of the work of Maxwell, Gibbs, and Boltzmann (1875), and
  • in terms of information theory , which demonstrates the equivalence of neguentropy (the opposite of entropy) and information as a result of the work of Szilard, Gabor, Rothstein, and Brillouin (1940-1950)
The two principal laws of thermodynamics apply only to closed systems, that is, entities with which there can be no exchange of energy, information, or material. The universe in its totality might be considered a closed system of this type; this would allow the two laws to be applied to it.

  • The September issue of the Journal of Chemical Education has my article which shows why the statement in some texts (e.g., those numbered 11-13 in December 2005) that "Matter tends to become dispersed" is seriously misleading, It is a misinterpretation of a result from configurational (positional) entropy — itself a viewpoint that should not be introduced to general chemistry students because they then believe that there are two "types" of entropy rather than one. The article concludes with the important statement, "Two factors are necessary for entropy change in chemistry. An increase in thermodynamic entropy is enabled in a process by the motional energy of molecules (that, in chemical reactions, can arise from the energy released from a bond energy change). However, entropy increase is only

Home Introduction Screenshots Downloads CVS ... Deutsch ENTROPY stands for Emerging Network To Reduce Orwellian Potency Yield and as such describes the main goal of the project.
  • ENTROPY is developed as a response to increasing censorship and surveillance in the internet. The program connects your computer to a network of machines which all run this software. The ENTROPY network is running parallel to the WWW and also other internet services like FTP, email, ICQ. etc. For the user the ENTROPY network looks like a collection of WWW pages. The difference to the WWW however is that there are no accesses to central servers. And this is why there is no site operator who could log who downloaded what and when. Every computer taking part in the ENTROPY network (every node) is at the same time server, router for other nodes, caching proxy and client for the user: that is You. After you gained some experience with the ENTROPY network, there are command line tools for you to insert whole directory trees into the network as a ENTROPY site. So ENTROPY does for you what a webspace provider does for you in the WWW - but without the storage and bandwidth costs and without any regulation or policy as to what kind of content you are allowed to publish. Everyone can contribute his own ENTROPY site for everybody else to browse through. The contents is stored in a distributed manner across all available and reachable nodes and no one can find out about who put up what contents into the network [ ]. Even if your node is not actively running, your contents can be retrieved by others without knowing that it was actually you who published the files. Of course this is only true if you do not publish your name (or leave your name or other personal data in the files you publish)

Written by entropy Friday, 01 February 2008 We are sad to announce that our singer (and Erik's wife) Kathleen has died on the 25th of january 2008. She was fighting cancer and lost. She was very very proud she did her first and only gig with Entropy in november. This was a 'high' in here life and very special as she was already ill. We will miss here for here singing, her lyrics, but also for the positive and gentle voice she was in many ways in Entropy.
