It encodes how the probabilities are partitioned among the microstates and actually allow us to calculate all the thermodynamic properties of the system (see Supporting Information).
This particular calculus for [W.sub.[GAMMA] holds only for the equilibrium state where all the microstates complying with the state distribution have the same probability.
This is consistent with the usual understanding of entropy as hidden information; indeed, the true information about the microstates is not accessible (only the macrostate), and this is what entropy stands for.
If EEG topographies at the local maximum in the GFP curve of different grip force modes are known, the change and transformation of EEG microstates in the whole grip force movement process can be compared and analyzed concretely.
The economic reality of most island microstates is one of resource and financial poverty rather than the sun- and-sea idyll portrayed by tourist industry marketing.
Dos especies serian polinizadores secundarios o copolinizadores (Microstates sp.2 y Sibinia sp.
As the individual magnetic moments align themselves with the applied field, there is a decrease in the number of energy microstates available to the system, commensurate to an isothermal magnetic entropy change ([DELTA][S.sub.M]).
The matrix of configurations M has been introduced in order to describe the detailed set of configurations adopted by the macromolecule in microstates. Each line of the matrix M displays a microstates configuration through a sequence of zeroes in those positions where the sites of multidentate macromolecule are not occupied by a ligand, and with a sequence of ones in those positions where the sites are bound to the ligand.

One of the most universal criteria to rank Processes within a Process Field then the Process Field Classes to configure Process Field Dimension is based on Entropy or the order established by any Process's microstates. A dimension ordered using Entropy as basic criteria is called further an Entropic or a Causal Dimension.
