Read & Download A Farewell to Entropy Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The principal message of this book is that thermodynamics and statistical mechanics will benefit from replacing the unfortunate misleading and mysterious term “entropy” with a familiar meaningful and appropriate term such as information missing information or uncertainty This replacement would facilitate the interpretation of the “driving force” of many processes in terms of informational changes and dispel the mystery that has always enshrouded entropyIt has been 140 years since Clausius coined.
