Order, Disorder, and Entropy

Order, Disorder, and Entropy
Title page to Erwin Schrodinger's 1944 chapter Order, Disorder, and Entropy.
In famous publications, Order, Disorder, and Entropy is the famous nine-page chapter six of Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger’s 1944 book What is Life?, itself a precipitate of Schrodinger’s February 1943 lectures at Trinity college. [1]

It is difficult to even begin to describe the influence of this little chapter. In all probability, it is likely the most indirectly-cited chapter in corpus of theory represented with human thermodynamics, particularly for its simpleton derivation of negative entropy, which Schrodinger posits is the thermodynamic representation of the order of any system.
