I've just finished reading God: The Failed Hypothesis by Victor J Stenger, and was wondering if somebody could clear something up for me.
One thing he said was that the definition of maximum entropy of a sphere (universe) was a black hole of the size of the sphere. Am I right in thinking he puts forth this definition because in the black hole, everything is uniform, at equilibrium? Same density, same temperature, same pressure.
If that is the case then for a moment I thought that minimum entropy would be a vacuum, but that actually seems to fit the above description of maximum entropy as well.
So I ask, what is the definition and an example of minimum entropy?
It seems to me that the measurement of disorder is a bit backwards!
