Describing a New Entropy A reformulation of Boltzmann-Gibbs entropy by one Constantino Tsallis is causing quite a buzz/stir in the theoretical physics community. It was originally published in 1988, but it sounds like it's only recently hit its stride. There's going to be a conference on "Tsallis entropy" in October co-chaired by Murray Gell-Mann!

Tsallis had better go carefully into this. I don't think I'd want this guy's ghost angry at me. (Anyway, I prefer Tallis.)

Fascinating. Thansk for that. I've looked around and this seems to be a good place to continue reading from (includes a link to Tsallis's latest review paper).
