Koszul information geometry and Souriau Lie group thermodynamics
Abstract
The François Massieu 1869 idea to derive some mechanical and thermal properties of physical systems from 'Characteristic Functions', was developed by Gibbs and Duhem in thermodynamics with the concept of potentials, and introduced by Poincaré in probability. This paper deals with generalization of this Characteristic Function concept by JeanLouis Koszul in Mathematics and by JeanMarie Souriau in Statistical Physics. The KoszulVinberg Characteristic Function (KVCF) on convex cones will be presented as cornerstone of 'Information Geometry' theory, defining Koszul Entropy as Legendre transform of minus the logarithm of KVCF, and Fisher Information Metrics as hessian of these dual functions, invariant by their automorphisms. In parallel, Souriau has extended the Characteristic Function in Statistical Physics looking for other kinds of invariances through coadjoint action of a group on its momentum space, defining physical observables like energy, heat and momentum as pure geometrical objects. In covariant Souriau model, Gibbs equilibriums states are indexed by a geometric parameter, the Geometric (Planck) Temperature, with values in the Lie algebra of the dynamical Galileo/Poincaré groups, interpreted as a spacetime vector, giving to the metric tensor a null Lie derivative. Fisher Information metric appears as the opposite of the derivative of Mean 'Moment map' by geometric temperature,more »

Ab initio rigid water : effect on water geometry, ion hydration, and thermodynamics.
We investigate the liquid structure, ion hydration, and some thermodynamic properties associated with the rigid geometry approximation to water by applying ab initio molecular dynamics simulations (AIMD) with the PerdewBurkeErnzerhof (PBE) exchangecorrelation functional at T = 320 K. We vary the rigid water geometry in order to locate a class of practical water models that yield reasonable liquid structure and dynamics, and to examine the progression of AIMDpredicted water behavior as the OH bond length varies. Water constrained at the optimal PBE gas phase geometry yields reasonable pair correlation functions. The predicted liquid phase pressure, however, is large ({approx}8.0 kbar).more » 
The Interaction of an 180o Ferroelectric Domain Wall with a Biased Scanning Probe Microscopy Tip: Effective Wall Geometry and Thermodynamics in GinzburgLandauDevonshire Theory
The interaction of ferroelectric 180odomain wall with a strongly inhomogeneous electric field of biased Scanning Probe Microscope tip is analyzed within continuous LandauGinzburgDevonshire theory. Equilibrium shape of the initially flat domain wall boundary bends, attracts or repulses from the probe apex, depending on the sign and value of the applied bias. For large tipwall separations, the probeinduced domain nucleation is possible. The approximate analytical expressions for the polarization distribution are derived using direct variational method. The expressions provide insight how the equilibrium polarization distribution depends on the wall finitewidth, correlation and depolarization effects, electrostatic potential distribution of the probe andmore » 
Evaluation of coincidence lattice grain boundary and interface geometry in oxides by structural thermodynamics
Theoretical calculations of the relative grain boundary energy for ceramics are presented. A geometric representation consisting of several boundary layers is considered based on specific ionic distributions in the bulk crystals which are in contact at the boundary. The model assumes charge compensation by charged (point) vacancies on each site of an effective lattice. Within the framework of a simple structural description, the influence of both the misorientation angle and the ionic distribution (including the order parameters) on the relative boundary energy has been evaluated for the case of unrelaxed, symmetrical tilt boundaries in MgOdoped [gamma]Al[sub 2]O[sub 3]. The configurationsmore » 
Geometry of higherdimensional black hole thermodynamics
We investigate thermodynamic curvatures of the Kerr and ReissnerNordstroem (RN) black holes in spacetime dimensions higher than four. These black holes possess thermodynamic geometries similar to those in fourdimensional spacetime. The thermodynamic geometries are the Ruppeiner geometry and the conformally related Weinhold geometry. The Ruppeiner geometry for a d=5 Kerr black hole is curved and divergent in the extremal limit. For a d{>=}6 Kerr black hole there is no extremality but the Ruppeiner curvature diverges where one suspects that the black hole becomes unstable. The Weinhold geometry of the Kerr black hole in arbitrary dimension is a flat geometry. Formore »
