Abstract: In this letter, it is argued that the correct counting of microstates is obtained from the very beginning when using Newtonian rather than Laplacian state functions, because the former are intrinsically permutation invariant.
Keywords: Gibbs’ paradox; classical statistical mechanics of indistinguishable particles; state Gibbs’ paradox; classical statistical mechanics of indistinguishable particles; state
