Entropy and Energy in Higher Dimensions

  1. Sep 26, 2009 #1
    How do we know that energy behaves the same way in higher dimensions as it does for 3-dimensions? With a higher dimensional freedom, it might actually behave differently - if, for example, time were a flexible degree of freedom, then descriptions, such as entropy, wouldn't necessarily be pointed in a single arrow of time. Of course, this is mostly thinking, in which I haven't described an experiment for this...but has anyone at least theoretically (mathematically) tried to evaluate entropy and energy in higher dimensions?
