comment Can two photons form a bound state?
Entanglement is not relevant for the question, but thanks for mentioning it. You're saying that the bounding distance would be bigger than the size of the universe and at the same time that there is no bound.

@igael I use Gibbs sampling, which is similar.

comment Statistical specific heat as energy fluctuation in spin glasses
Your point about the definition being relative is good. I use that formula because I'm checking whether Cv has a peak due to a critical point. So the question should rather be: do I have to take into account the other peaks to this end?

comment Statistical specific heat as energy fluctuation in spin glasses
So you're saying I should consider all the peaks...

comment Why can't the entropy of an isolated system decrease?
It's not that it becomes negative: there would be a negative change in entropy.

Let's say "anthropic principle" and not "theology"...

@JonCoombs exactly. I hope it is clear from my answer that I also subscribe to what you say.

@xxbbcc, the change I made was only what I stated: "example" to "example of a consequence".
