Physical Consequences of Noncanonical Quantizations — An Example of so(2,1) Oscillator

  • A. Horzela


We consider noncanonical harmonic oscillator quantized as a representation of the so(2,1) algebra and investigate its termodynamical properties. For all temperatures the entropy of such a noncanonical oscillator is greater than the entropy of the canonical one. This may serve as an explanation why in the equilibrium the oscillator is canonical.
