## Negative heat capacity at phase-separation in macroscopic systems

*Gross, D. H. E.*;

- Subject: Nuclear Theory | Condensed Matter - Statistical Mechanics | Astrophysics

Systems with long-range as well with short-range interactions should necessarily have a convex entropy S(E) at proper phase transitions of first order, i.e. when a separation of phases occurs. Here the microcanonical heat capacity c(E)= -\frac{(\partial S/\partial E)^2}... View more
