We present a rigorous logical scheme for the definition of entropy, based on operative definitions of all the concepts employed, with all assumptions declared explicitly. Our treatment is an equivalent variation of the general definition of entropy given in E.P. Gyftopoulos and G.P. Beretta, Thermodynamics. Foundations and Applications, Dover, Mineola, 2005. However, here we outline the minimal set of definitions and assumptions required to construct the same definition by the most direct and essential sequence of logical steps.

Abstract

We present a rigorous logical scheme for the definition of entropy, based on operative definitions of all the concepts employed, with all assumptions declared explicitly. Our treatment is an equivalent variation of the general definition of entropy given in E.P. Gyftopoulos and G.P. Beretta, Thermodynamics. Foundations and Applications, Dover, Mineola, 2005. However, here we outline the minimal set of definitions and assumptions required to construct the same definition by the most direct and essential sequence of logical steps.
