Abstract
We consider the work of reversible mixing of ideal gases using a real process. Now assumptions were made concerning infinite shifts, infinite number of cycles and infinite work to provide an accurate calculation of entropy resulting from reversible mixing of ideal gases. We [...] Read more.
We consider the work of reversible mixing of ideal gases using a real process. Now assumptions were made concerning infinite shifts, infinite number of cycles and infinite work to provide an accurate calculation of entropy resulting from reversible mixing of ideal gases. We derived an equation showing the dependence of this entropy on the difference in potential of mixed gases, which is evidence for the absence of Gibbs' paradox. Full article

Abstract
It is shown that if the conditional densities of a bivariate random variable have maximum entropies, subject to certain constraints, then the bivariate density also maximizes entropy, subject to appropriate constraints. Some examples are discussed. Full article
