Dan Styer on Entropy

Feb. 14, 2011

Oberlin College's Schiffer Professor of Physics Dan Styer has recently published, in the American Journal of Physics, a tiny paper that in just four paragraphs decisively demolishes the common (and poisonous) misconception that entropy is analogous to decay or destruction. Read "Entropy and Rust".
