Hello, I have a question about Boltzmann Distribution. I wonder why partial N of Nj is 1 and partial U of Nj=Ej. because N is constant, partial N of Nj has to be 0 and Partial Nj of U has to be 0 as well. They are constants so, to make sense of the equation, alpha and beta have to be 0 but this is still absurd. Can anyone tell me why this is true?
