Internationally agreed values for the thermodynamical properties of key chemical substances, by the Committee on Data for Science and Technology CODATA. Includes standard enthalpy of formation and entropy at 298.15 K.
The Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) has conducted a project to establish internationally agreed values for the thermodynamic properties of key chemical substances. This table presents the final results of the project. Use of these recommended, internally consistent values is encouraged in the analysis of thermodynamic measurements, data reduction, and preparation of other thermodynamic tables. The table includes the standard enthalpy of formation at 298.15 K, the entropy at 298.15 K, and the quantity (298.15 K)- (0). A value of in theD f column for an element indicates the reference state for that element. The standard state pressure is 100000 Pa (1 bar). See the reference for information on the dependence of gas-phase entropy on the choice of standard state pressure. Substances are listed in alphabetical order of their chemical formulas when written in the most common form. REFERENCE Cox, J. D., Wagman, D. D., and Medvedev, V.

Glottal stop.
Tonight the plans for the England rugby team's triumphal return to the UK have been announced. I love the notion that the England rugby squad have spent four days 'working out how best to recognise their victory and celebrate with their supporters', when it's more a question of a variety of hangers-on deliberating on how they can extract most value from the efforts of 'their' team.

An elementary introduction is given to the problem of black hole entropy as formulated by Bekenstein and Hawking. The information theoretic basis of Bekenstein's formulation is briefly reviewed and compared with Hawking's approach. The issue of calculating the entropy by actual counting of microstates is taken up next within two currently popular approaches to quantum gravity, viz., string theory and canonical quantum gravity. The treatment of the former assay is confined to a few remarks, mainly of a critical nature, while some of the computational techniques of the latter approach are elaborated. We conclude by trying to find commonalities between these two rather disparate directions of work.

65. The Second Law Of Thermodynamics
Conversational introduction to the second law and entropy via practical everyday examples. Qualitative, nonmath, but substantial.
Time's Arrow Murphy's Law Activation Energy Chemical Kinetics ... Chemical Bonds This site shows that some ancient questions about "things going wrong" in our lives have surprisingly simple answers in modern basic chemistry (even things happening to us which cause that painful cry of "Why me?") Still more important to one's philosophy about life, these chemical ideas can startle us into seeing how fortunate we all are: that things don't go wrong more often! We'll talk mainly about down-to-earth things common solid objects of wood, metal, and bone, not about complex computer chips or programs going wrong (nor about personal relations that fall apart. Even chemistry has limits.) Simple things often are involved in annoying or deadly happenings to us: breaking a surfboard (that then hits us), having a tire blow out, being in a fire in Malibu, flying the X-1 (as Chuck Yeager had to) with a corroded battery cable or riding a horse and being thrown ending up with a broken neck.

66. Entropy Coding (EC)
Publications, peoples and source code for entropy coding.
The Data Compression Resource on the Internet Entropy Coding (EC)

The process of entropy coding (EC) can be split in two parts: modeling and coding. Modeling assigns probabilities to the symbols, and coding produces a bit sequence from these probabilities. As established in Shannon's source coding theorem, there is a relationship between the symbol probability and it's corresponding bit sequence. A symbol with probabilitiy p gets a bit sequence of length -log(p).
In order to achieve a good compression rate, an exact propability estimation is needed. Since the model is responsible for the probability of each symbol, modeling is one the most important tasks in data compression. Entropy coding can be done with a coding scheme, which uses a discrete number of bits for each symbol, for example Huffman coding, or with a coding scheme, which uses a discrete number of bits for several symbols. In the last case we get arithmetoc coding, if the number of symbols is equal to the total number of symbols to encode. Publications Logo Title Descrition Modeling for Text Compression

75. The Second Law Of Thermodynamics. By Brig Klyce
A rather puzzling article by Brig Klyce about entropy with references to living systems from the point of view of thermodynamics and information theory.
The use of thermodynamics in biology has a long history rich in confusion Sometimes people say that life violates the second law of thermodynamics. This is not the case; we know of nothing in the universe that violates that law. So why do people say that life violates the second law of thermodynamics? What is the second law of thermodynamics? According to philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn, the second law was first put into words by two scientists, Rudolph Clausius and William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), using different examples, in 1850-51 . American quantum physicist Richard P. Feynman, however, says the French physicist Sadi Carnot discovered the second law 25 years earlier. That would have been before the first law, conservation of energy, was discovered ! In any case, modern scientists completely agree about the above principles.
Thermodynamic Entropy
The first opportunity for confusion arises when we introduce the term entropy into the mix. Clausius invented the term in 1865. He had noticed that a certain ratio was constant in reversible, or ideal, heat cycles. The ratio was heat exchanged to absolute temperature. Clausius decided that the conserved ratio must correspond to a real, physical quantity, and he named it "entropy". Surely not every conserved ratio corresponds to a real, physical quantity. Historical accident has introduced this term to science. On another planet there could be physics without the concept of entropy. It completely lacks intuitive clarity. Even the great physicist James Clerk Maxwell had it backward for a while

The Quantum Theory of Ur-Objects as a Theory of Information
Authors: Holger Lyre
Comments: 11 pages
Journal-ref: Int.J.Theor.Phys. 34 (1995) 1541
The quantum theory of ur-objects proposed by C. F. von Weizsaecker has to be interpreted as a quantum theory of information. Ur-objects, or urs, are thought to be the simplest objects in quantum theory. Thus an ur is represented by a two-dimensional Hilbert space with the universal symmetry group SU(2), and can only be characterized as ''one bit of potential information''. In this sense it is not a spatial but an ''information atom''. The physical structure of the ur theory is reviewed, and the philosophical consequences of its interpretation as an information theory are demonstrated by means of some important concepts of physics such as time, space, entropy, energy, and matter, which in ur theory appear to be directly connected with information as ''the'' fundamental substance. This hopefully will help to provide a new understanding of the concept of information.
