V. Correlation Induced by Nonextensivity and the Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 560)


To establish the zeroth law of thermodynamics in nonextensive statistical mechanics, it is essential to realize factorization of the Tsallis probability distribution. Here, the factorizability and the property of correlation induced by nonextensivity are discussed. Employing the classical gas model, it is shown how the correlation is suppressed in the thermodynamic limit.
