Abstract: Since fluctuations can be magnified due to internal interactions under a certain condition, the equal-probability does not hold. The entropy would be defined as S(t)=-k Σr Pr(t) ln Pr(t). From this or S=k ln Ω in an internal condensed process, possible decrease of entropy is calculated. Internal interactions, which bring about inapplicability of the statistical independence, cause possibly decreases of entropy in an isolated system. This possibility is researched for attractive process, internal energy, system entropy and nonlinear interactions, etc. An isolated system may form a self-organized structure probably.
