Maximum entropy generation and κexponential model
Abstract
An increasing number of natural phenomena appear to deviate from standard statistical distributions. It has kindled interest in alternative formulation of statistical mechanics which should preserve most of the mathematical structures of the BoltzmannGibbs theory, while reproducing the phenomenology of the anomalous systems. The κtheory has obtained a lot of results in the analysis of natural phenomena, but it was not extended to irreversible open systems. A modified κtheory is proposed for its use in irreversible open systems.
