In Statistical Mechanics, the For a classical discrete system, a Boltzmann Factor is: e - β - "Inverse Temperature", i.e., 1/(
*K*)_{B}T *K*- Boltzmann Constant (k)._{B}- T - Temperature.
- E
_{i}- Energy level i, for i = 0,1,2...
and the partition function (Z) is the sum:
Mathematics also uses the term Partition Function for other functions. In probability, it is a generalization of the above. In number theory, it is the number of sets of non-zero positive integers that add up to a particular integer. statistical mechanics,physics)http://www.sparknotes.com/physics/thermodynamics/stats/section1.rhtml Referenced by:
