Title: Rosenfeld-Prigogine complementarity of descriptions in the context of informational statistical thermodynamics
Author: Luzzi, R

Vasconcellos, AR
Abstract: Within the framework of informational statistical thermodynamics, we consider the case of a particular dissipative dynamical system, namely, a system of harmonic oscillators weakly interacting with a thermal bath. Informational entropy and informational-entropy production are obtained. In terms of them we derive the information gain in alternative pictures and a Rosenfeld-like complementarity principle between microdescription and macrodescription. This complementarity is related to a kind of measure of the incompleteness of both descriptions and to Prigogine's theory of irreversible processes. The fundamental role of the universal Boltzmann constant for the characterization of this complementarity is discussed.
