Following the previous article, now I will discuss some interesting points in the paper: Generalized information entropies depending only on the probability distribution, by O.Obregón and A.Gil-Villegas. You can find the paper here http://arxiv.org/abs/1206.3353 The Boltzmann factor for a generalized … Continue reading

This post is the first of three dedicated to some of my followers. Those readers from Mexico (a nice country, despite the issues and particularities it has, as the one I live in…), ;). Why? Well, …Firstly, they have proved … Continue reading

The second post in this thread is completely speculative. 1) Suppose that Dark Energy is some kind of “fluid” made of some long wavelength “particles” or “exotic stuff”. 2) How different are those “Dark Energy particles” from the particles we … Continue reading

Tower Wang, in his paper Coulomb Force as an Entropic Force, deduced Coulomb and Newton laws using the Verlinde approach in D=3+1 dimensions. He begins with the Reissner-Nordstrom metric in spacetime: with the function and … Continue reading

We will generalize the entropic gravity approach to include higher dimensions in this post. The keypoint from this theory of entropic gravity, according to Erik Verlinde, is that gravity does not exist as “fundamental” force and it is a derived … Continue reading

In 2010, Erik Verlinde made himself famous once again. Erik Verlinde is a theoretical physicist who has made some contributions to String Theory. In particular, the so-called Verlinde formula. However, this time was not apparently a contribution related to string … Continue reading
