Thermodynamics of Systems with Nonintegrable Interactions
Luijten and I wrote a paper concerned with straightening out some
mistakes in the nonextensive thermodynamics literature. You can view
either the preprint,
or the online journal publication,
Phys. Rev. E
63, 031108 (2001). Constantino Tsallis, who spearheaded
the nonextensive thermodynamics movement, objected to our paper and
submitted a comment to the preprint archive
and to Physical Review. We were asked by Physical Review to respond
as non-anonymous referees to this comment. We debated for awhile whether
to post our referee response on the cond-mat archive as a response to
Tsallis's comment, but we chose instead simply to post it here.
