S3P2 — IX. Physics & Philosophy Meeting: Summer School on Entropy
25 Aug 2021 - 27 Aug 2021 • Split, Croatia
Organizer:
Faculty of Science, University of Split
Abstract:
This School is addressed to persons interested in the discussion of one of the most important concepts of physics – entropy. Among the lecturers are some of the leading scientists and philosophers in the field. Entropy has played a crucial role in the emergence of quantum physics, in relation to the problem of the application of statistical mechanics to black-body radiation, particularly the principle of equipartition of energy. In the resolution of this problem by Planck and Einstein entropy played a leading role. And finally: How can entropy be related to other fields of knowledge, outside of natural sciences? These are some of the questions which will be addressed in this Summer School.
