Shuffled Cards, Messy Desks, and Disorderly Dorm Rooms - Examples of Entropy Increase? Nonsense!
Frank L. Lambert
2834 Lewis Dr., La Verne, CA 91750 The order of presentation in this article is unusual; its conclusion is first. This is done because the title entails text and lecture examples so familiar to all teachers that most may find a preliminary discussion redundant. Conclusion The dealer shuffling cards in Monte Carlo or Las Vegas, the professor who mixes the papers and books on a desk, the student who tosses clothing about his or her room, the fuel for the huge cranes and trucks that would be necessary to move the nonbonded stones of the Great Pyramid of Cheops all across Egypteach undergoes physical, thermodynamic entropy increase in these specific processes. The thermodynamic entropy change from human-defined order to disorder in the giant Egyptian stones themselves, in the clothing and books in a room or papers on a desk, and in the millions of cards in the world's casinos is precisely the same: Zero. K. G. Denbigh succinctly summarizes the case against identifying changes in position in one macro object or in a group with physical entropy change (

4. Entropy In Science
Specializing in the uses of entropy in statistics and science.

Articles, references, and links providing an upto-date account of entropy, the second law of thermodynamics, and their profound significance from physics and biology to cognition and psychology.
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 understanding with an expanded view of thermodynamics, 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.

For I am an engine and I'm holding on. The world is all bending and breaking from me. (The following is melodramatic, immature, solipsistic, and whiny, among other things, hopefully some of them better than the preceding adjectives would indicate. I'll likely regret it later but I needed to write it now, as an exercise of Cathartic Whingeing in the interests of the preservation of Perspective and Sanity. Consider fair warning given.)
I can feel myself starting to slip/sink under the the waking nightmares that this current grinding, lonely, quiet desperation is how it's going to be, always, for the next fifty-plus years. The (presumed, I thankfully never remember them) real ones that I tear out of into sweating, trembling wakefulness in the chill of the wee hours. The bowling ball that has apparently taken up residence in my gut, slowly, peristaltically forcing its way up my throat as the day wears on.

EntropyPool and Entropy Filter Home Page
Welcome to the EntropyPool and Entropy Filter demonstration site! This is version 0.1.12 of the system. This Web site embodies a demonstration of the EntropyPool, entropy filter and gatherer daemon. This site also contains a snapshot of the Java code and documentation. This system gathers its `entropy' or truely random noise from a number of sources, including local processes, files and devices, Web page hits and remote Web sites. The EntropyPool system can generate bits which have enough real and unpredictable randomness in them to make them a good source of bits for cryptographically-secure keys for example, and in general can enhance the security of any Web- or command-line- based Java system. The EntropyPool can also be used as a good source of bits to improve the statistical properties of other random-number sources. For example, if you work in a merchant bank and you run a Monte Carlo pricing method for a complex financial instrument then you may want to run it once in your test or batch harness with a fixed seed to guarantee reproducability, and once with a seed drawn from a local EntropyPool to ensure that the result so computed is close enough, and that there is nothing special about the fixed seed you are using for your problem.

Outpost Entropy is a literary magazine. We believe there is a poetry out there synonymous with our times that accurately reflects the continuity of discontinuity, the multifariousness in which we attempt, and manage to, integrate our lives.
We aim to publish it. WHAT DO WE LIKE?
We try not to let our biases blind us, and be as objective as is possible for us. We attempt to evaluate submissions on the basis of how well they do what they set out to do according to (loosely speaking) the genre they fall into. We like postcards from the edge. We like work that is complex, all over the place, but whole. We can dig the political. We can go for an emphatically expressed anything or rant. We like when we can find a certain harmony in the onslaught that takes it back out yet again. We like to laugh. We like wit and cycnacism well done. We'd like your coolest experiments. We like the experiencial that takes us for the ride. We don't care if you make sense or not as long as there is a complicity in the 'non-sense'. We really have a hard time suspending our prejudices when it comes to the blow by blow, day in the life, overly superficial narrative that has little to no asthetic depth.
You probably have as good a chance here as anywhere.

Entropy and the second law of thermodynamics Student: Why the fast start? You took about 11 pages to get to entropy in that Prof: Some readers e-mailed me that "What is entropy?" was the only thing they were interested in. For that introductory Web page, I thought some practical examples like forest fires and rusting iron (or breaking surfboards – and bones) would be a great introduction to the second law before talking about how it's all measured by "entropy". Wasn’t that gradual approach OK? S: Yeh. I think I understand everything pretty well, but I didn't want to take time to read any more in that after what you called page six. What's new about entropy that you're going to talk about here that wasn't back there? P: [Just a sidenote to you: Sometime, click on , i.e., the "Last Page". It's based on chemistry, but it's not textbook stuff. It really could change your attitude about life and the troubles that will hit you sooner or later.] Now, back to entropy. Remember some people are logging on to this site without having read To bring them up to speed if you say you understood it pretty well, tell me about it as though I were a student. S: Ha! You mean I can be up in front of the room with the chalk and you'll sit down?
