The Chimera of Entropy

Split, Croatia, 16-21 July 2018

http://mapmf.pmfst.unist.hr/~sokolic/doku.php

Entropy is among the most important but also most perplexing concepts in physics. It is also a polymorphic concept: introduced in thermodynamics, we now find it in statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics, information theory, and black hole physics, to name just the most obvious. In this summer school, we will systematically explore the various concepts of entropy as they are used in state-of-the-art physics and evaluate their philosophical interpretations.

The summer school will consist in lectures and research talks. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work in short talks. We would like to emphasize that we are happy to accept scholars at any stage of their career (from students to senior faculty) as participants.
