Abstract

The goal of this comment note is to express our considerations about the recent paper by A. Ben Naim (Entropy 2017, 19, 48). We strongly support the distinguishing between the Shannon measure of information and the thermodynamic entropy, suggested in the paper. We demonstrate that the Voronoi entropy should also be clearly distinguished from the entropy of a two-dimensional gas. Actually, the Voronoi entropy being an intensive value is the averaged Shannon measure of ordering for a given pattern.
