: From Theistic Science to Naturalistic Science by Matthew Stanley.
may capitalize on its knowledge about one particle, Landauer said, but the demon must use up the energy it gained when it scrubs that information from its finite memory and turns its attention to the next particle.
"Kelvin, Thermodynamics and the Natural World" is completed by a full biography, overviews of various monuments to his memory, and short 'Stories in Pictures' on the Atlantic cable, Maxwell's Demon
, the universities associated with the development of thermodynamics and the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
uses information which supposedly increases entropy through gaining and encoding that knowledge but MaxEnt seems to indicate instead a net exchange of knowledge and complexity which then leads to the question of what effect self-knowledge has upon the greater system.
and the Golden Apple: Global Discord in the New Millennium
Using the thought experiment known as "Maxwell's Demon
," Craig explores the issue of energy transference and its role in understanding the "otherworld" into which energy moves.
Among the topics are redundancy in the English language, thermal agitation and Brownian motion, Maxwell's demon
and the negentropy principle of information, the problem of computing, and the problem of very small distances.
In thermodynamics there is a famous thought experiment that is relevant and prompts the question: Does DNA act as a modern-day "Maxwell's demon
" (Smith, 2010), that is, as a nano-robot programmed to generate and maintain particular structures and processes in its system, using information and energy to lower entropy, for a period of time?
is a thought experiment intended by J.
