Tsallis Entropy and the transition to scaling in fragmentation

By O Sotolongo-Costa, GJ Rodgers and AH Rodriguez


By using the maximum entropy principle with Tsallis entropy we obtain a fragment size distribution function which undergoes a transition to scaling. This distribution function reduces to those obtained by other authors using Shannon entropy. The treatment is easily generalisable to any process of fractioning with suitable constraints
