Abstract: A novel representation of entropy is introduced, based on the heuristic concept of heat dispersion. To this end dispersion sets are defined, which describe both the heat transferred to a system and the associated entropy change. Some applications are discussed.
Keywords: heat; entropy; equipartition; degree of freedom; dispersion element; dispersion set; dispersion cardinality; effective cardinality; second principle; heat engines; efficiency; radiation; low temperatures
