Title:
How to reconcile Information theory and Gibbs-Herz entropy for inverted populated systems 
Abstract:
In this paper we discuss about the validity of the Shannon entropy functional in connection with the correct Gibbs-Hertz probability distribution function. We show that there is no contradiction in using the Shannon-Gibbs functional and restate the validity of information theory applied to equilibrium statistical mechanics. We show that under these assumptions, entropy is always a monotone function of energy, irrespective to the shape of the density of states, leading always to positiv...    »
