Equation (3) is used to substitute into the dimensionless entropy change, [E.
Another source that contributes to the compressive strains during unloading is the material accommodation to the stresses resulting from the entropy change at high temperature.
Thus, an understanding of the political system in terms of entropy change would provide a theoretical basis supporting the process of self-transformation or self-organization towards higher states of systems stability and complexity.
The fact that entropy was first discovered in heat baths is a historical phenomenon which is logical, as the observation of entropy change is clearer in such simple systems than in more complex systems such as social systems, where the direct observation of entropy change is more difficult to analyze and measure.
