There are people proposing the possibility of using entropic force to explain the gravity force between objects. The emphasis is that entropy is more fundamental than energy. It is the closest study as entropy is closely related to information. What is Mathematical formulation of entropic Gravitational force?

... It implies that gravity is not a fundamental interaction, but an emergent phenomenon which arises from the statistical behavior of microscopic degrees of freedom encoded on a holographic screen...

This question could use clarification. Have you read the Verlinde paper [arxiv.org/abs/1001.0785] and need clarification? Are you looking for a low-level explanation? –  AJK Aug 27 '13 at 2:26
I thought the article was the low-level explanation... –  Urs Schreiber Aug 27 '13 at 10:02
i am looking for Mathematical formulation, low/high-level make no difference –  Guest Aug 27 '13 at 22:51
