### Rigorous definition of electronic entropy

Suppose we want to compute the exact standard molar electronic entropy of helium at a finite but not very high temperature, say $T = 298.15 \textrm{ K}$. By "standard" I mean the standard ...

### Correlation Functions in the Cluster Variation Method [closed]

I've been referring to Dr Mohri's paper [DOI: 10.1007/s11837-013-0738-5] for the cluster variation method (CVM). I wish to calculate the configurational entropy of a binary FCC system. Cluster ...

### How to calculate the conformational entropy of a molecule?

Introduction It is know that the entropy of a system can be calculated using the formula (1): $$\label{eq:entropy_Boltz} S = {k_B}\ln \Omega\tag1$$ where $k_B$ is the ...
