Thermodynamics: Entropy of the Maxwell-Boltzman distribution?
 
I know that the entropy of Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac statistics as a function of the mean number of particles per state r (nr) is:

S=-k*Sum_over_r(nr*ln(nr)+-(1-+nr)*ln(1-+nr))

where the upper sign is for FD and the lower sign for BE

What is this expression for Maxwell-Boltzman statistics?
