Entropic Nonextensivity: A Possible Measure of Complexity
AbstractAn updated review  of nonextensive statistical mechanics and thermodynamics is colloquially presented. Quite naturally the possibility emerges for using the value of q - 1 (entropic nonextensivity) as a simple and efficient manner to provide, at least for some classes of systems, some characterization of the degree of what is currently referred to as complexity . A few historical digressions are included as well.
