WordsDay: Entropy in literature. The universe is destined to die. Some physicists believe that this death will occur as the rate of expansion tears every atom apart. Others believe that the Second Law of Thermodynamics means that, trillions of years into the future, all that will be left is the universal background radiation,

In the humanities and popular literature, the repeated use of entropy in connection with “disorder” (in the multitude of its different common meanings) has caused enormous intellectual harm. Entropy has been thereby dissociated from the quintessential connection with its atomic/molecular energetic foundation.
Summary. “Entropy” was the second professional story published by Pynchon, and this comic but grim tale established one of the dominant themes of his entire body of work. The setting is an apartment building in Washington, D.C., on a rainy day early in 1957. In a third-floor apartment, Meatball Mulligan and a strange group
(ĕn′trə-pē) A measure of the amount of disorder in a system. Entropy increases as the system’s temperature increases. For example, when an ice cube melts and becomes liquid, the energy of the molecular bonds which formed the ice crystals is lost, and the arrangement of the water molecules is more random, or disordered, than it was in the ice cube.
Entropy (information theory) The logarithm of the probability distribution is useful as a measure of entropy because it is additive for independent sources. For instance, the entropy of a fair coin toss is 1 bit, and the entropy of m tosses is m bits. In a straightforward representation, log2
The terms Boltzmann–Gibbs entropy or BG entropy, and Boltzmann–Gibbs–Shannon entropy or BGS entropy are also seen in the literature. See also [ edit ] Entropy
Definition of entropy. Entropy is the general trend of the universe toward death and disorder. The deterioration of copy editing and proof-reading, incidentally, is a token of the cultural entropy that has overtaken us in the postwar years.
The Concept of Pynchon’s Entropy and its Role in Postmodern Society. The difference between the entropy in the Pynchon’s earlier short story and the entropy in The Crying of Lot 49 allow readers different interpretations. It might be considered as Pynchon’s attempt to …
