    Because of the equivalence of entropy and information, an entropy theory of value is inevitably an information theory of value. Information is often regarded as a rather unusual commodity. In this section, we will show that informational and physical commodities share most of the same fundamental properties from the perspective of entropy by: 2. Entropy, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, The historical roots of information theory lie in statistical investigations of communication in natural language during the s.

Entropy can be defined for any Markov processes with reversible dynamics and the detailed balance property. In Boltzmann's Lectures on Gas Theory, he showed that this expression gives a measure of entropy for systems of atoms and molecules in the gas phase, thus providing a measure for the entropy of classical symbols: S.

    - Social ordering is constant and dynamic - Human social bx is purposive - Social orgs display self-maintaining and development characteristics - System is greater than the sum of its parts - Well being = nature state of social organizations (strengths perspective) - Social orgs can be studied as systems. How can individual acts amount to coherent systems of interaction? In this paper, we attempt to answer this key question by suggesting that there is a place for cities in the way we coordinate seemingly chaotic decisions. We look into the elementary processes of social interaction exploring a particular concept, “social entropy,” or how social systems deal with uncertainty and Cited by: 6.

In the book the authors seek to analyse the world's economic and social structures by using the second law of thermodynamics, that is, the law of entropy/5. Of all published articles, the following were the most read within the past 12 months.

Bailey. This book presents a new economic theory developed from physical and biological principles. It explains how technology, social systems and economic values are intimately related to resources. Many people have recognized that mainstream (neoclassical) economic theories.

Entropy is a measure of order and disorder. If left alone, aging systems go spontaneously from youthful, low entropy and order to old, high entropy and disorder. This book presents the commonality of entropy principles which govern the birth, maturation, and senescent history of aging humans, corporations, and the universe.

Further applications of thermodynamics to social-humanities may be found in the many papers published by the journal Entropy. Meteoropathy concerns the phenomenon for which human beings, as a part of nature and its outcome, respond to all the events in their environment, including meteorological factors.

This book introduces readers to basic concepts of information theory, extending its original linear conception of communication to many variables, networks, and higher-order interactions (including loops) and developing it into a method for analyzing qualitative data.

It elaborates on the algebra of entropy and information, shows how. This book provides current information about the many recent contributions of social systems theory. While some sociologists feel that the systems age ended with functionalism, in reality a number of recent developments have occurred within the field.This book is an updated version of the information theory classic, first published in About one-third of the book is devoted to Shannon source and channel coding theorems; the remainder addresses sources, channels, and codes and on information and distortion measures and their properties.

NewBrand: Springer US.In The Entropy of Capitalism, however, Robert Biel has produced an analysis, synthesizing all of these developments, that certainly deserves a place on your bookshelf. It is a fascinating and insightful book, about which there is too much to say, every page warranting copious marginalia and underlining.
