Nonextensive statistical mechanics (NSM) is a generalization of the classical Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics that has been developed in recent decades. NSM provides a framework for describing systems with long-range interactions, fractal structures, and other complex properties that cannot be adequately described by classical statistical mechanics.

The mathematical foundations of NSM are still under development, but significant progress has been made in recent years. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the mathematical foundations of NSM, including the following topics:

  • The concept of nonextensivity
  • The Tsallis entropy
  • The q-exponential distribution
  • The q-Gaussian distribution
  • The q-statistics

The Concept of Nonextensivity

Nonextensivity is a measure of the deviation from the additivity of entropy. In classical statistical mechanics, the entropy of a composite system is equal to the sum of the entropies of its subsystems. However, in systems with long-range interactions or fractal structures, the entropy of a composite system may be less than the sum of the entropies of its subsystems. This deviation from additivity is called nonextensivity.

The degree of nonextensivity can be quantified by the Tsallis entropy. The Tsallis entropy is a generalization of the Boltzmann-Gibbs entropy that takes into account the long-range interactions or fractal structures of the system. The Tsallis entropy is given by the following equation:

S_q = k/(q-1) (1 - \sum_i p_i^q)

where k is the Boltzmann constant, q is the nonextensivity parameter, and p_i is the probability of the i-th microstate.

The Tsallis Entropy

The Tsallis entropy has a number of interesting properties. First, the Tsallis entropy is equal to the Boltzmann-Gibbs entropy when q = 1. Second, the Tsallis entropy is concave for q > 1 and convex for q . Third, the Tsallis entropy is maximized when the system is in a state of maximum entropy.

The Tsallis entropy has been used to successfully describe a wide variety of systems, including:

  • Systems with long-range interactions
  • Systems with fractal structures
  • Systems in nonequilibrium
  • Biological systems
  • Social systems

The q-Exponential Distribution

The q-exponential distribution is a generalization of the exponential distribution that takes into account the nonextensivity of the system. The q-exponential distribution is given by the following equation:

P_q(x) = (1 - (1 - q) x)^{1/(1 - q)}

where q is the nonextensivity parameter.

The q-exponential distribution has a number of interesting properties. First, the q-exponential distribution is equal to the exponential distribution when q = 1. Second, the q-exponential distribution has a power-law tail for q . Third, the q-exponential distribution is maximized at x = 0.

The q-Gaussian Distribution

The q-Gaussian distribution is a generalization of the Gaussian distribution that takes into account the nonextensivity of the system. The q-Gaussian distribution is given by the following equation:

P_q(x) = \frac{1}{Z}e_q^{-(x - \mu)^2/(2 \sigma^2)}

where Z is the normalization constant, q is the nonextensivity parameter, \mu is the mean, and \sigma^2 is the variance.

The q-Gaussian distribution has a number of interesting properties. First, the q-Gaussian distribution is equal to the Gaussian distribution when q = 1. Second, the q-Gaussian distribution has a power-law tail for q . Third, the q-Gaussian distribution is maximized at x = \mu.

The q-Statistics

The q-statistics is a generalization of the Boltzmann-Gibbs statistics that takes into account the nonextensivity of the system. The q-statistics is given by the following equation:

S_q = k/(q - 1)(1 - \sum_i p_i^q)

where k is the Boltzmann constant, q is the nonextensivity parameter, and p_i is the probability of the i-th microstate.

The q-statistics has a number of interesting properties. First, the q-statistics is equal to the Boltzmann-Gibbs statistics when q = 1. Second, the q-statistics is concave for q > 1 and convex for q . Third, the q-statistics is maximized when the system is in a state of maximum entropy.

The q-statistics has been used to successfully describe a wide variety of systems, including:

  • Systems with long-range interactions
  • Systems with fractal structures
  • Systems in nonequilibrium
  • Biological systems
  • Social systems

Nonextensive statistical mechanics is a powerful tool for describing systems with long-range interactions, fractal structures, and other complex properties. The mathematical foundations of NSM are still under development, but significant progress has been made in recent years. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the mathematical foundations of NSM, including the concept of nonextensivity, the Tsallis entropy, the q-exponential distribution, the q-Gaussian distribution, and the q-statistics.

This book is essential reading for researchers and students interested in nonextensive statistical mechanics.
