Phonon DOS -> Thermodynamic Properties
 
Hello,

How do I convert phonon density of states into thermodynamic properties?

Specifically, I want specific heat at constant volume, and entrophy.

Every textbook I've looked in just says it can be done, but without specifying how...

Thanks for any help

Joel
