In Section 5, we analyze the stability of thermodynamical equilibrium for constant as well as variable [GAMMA].
We discuss the two scenarios for thermodynamical equilibrium by taking particle creation rate [GAMMA] = constant and [GAMMA] = [GAMMA](t) for which entropy function attains a maximum entropy state, i.e., d([S.sub.A] + [S.sub.f]) < 0.
Firstly, we consider [GAMMA] as constant and observe the stability of thermodynamical equilibrium.
We observe that [[??].sub.T] < 0 for all values of T which leads to the validity of thermodynamical equilibrium.
We observe that all the trajectories are showing the negative increasing behavior, which exhibits the validity of thermodynamical equilibrium.
Thoughts of science as sometimes embodied in almost mystical expressions like "undimensional singularity", "uncertainty principle", "Thermodynamical equilibrium" - which is but death of the system - 'Quantum spin', 'Schrodinger's cat', infinite density in space-time curvature etc.

In order to investigate the temperature T and the chemical potential [mu] dependence in this model, let us consider a system of both quarks and antiquarks in the thermodynamical equilibrium. Here quark chemical potential [mu] [equivalent to] [[mu].sub.B]/3.
