Conjugate Potential of a Charge

  1. May 22, 2015 #1
    Hi guys,
    Can someone help me with a definition of the conjugate potential of a conserved charge (what exactly is it) and how does it enter the partition function? For example I have read that the "conjugate potential of the Energy is the inverse temperature" and of course they enter in the partition function as

    Z ~ e^{-βE}
