Title
The modified repeat rate described within a thermodynamic framework
Author
Abstract
Derek J. de Solla Price viewed science as a complex system and anticipated that the science of science can be developed via an analogy to thermodynamics. The main point of this article is to show a direct equivalence between a thermodynamic framework and the classical theory of evenness. It illustrates how thermodynamically inspired terms can lead to the measures used to quantify diversity (or lack thereof), balance, evenness, consistency, or concentration. A real-world example based on intersectional inequalities in science is used as an illustration.
