I've been reading some threads about the concept of entropy and how it might be related to our universe.

Assume for a moment that the universe is finite (bounded), and that a finite quantity of kinetic energy was imparted via the Big Bang via the origin of the universe, and that this energy is dispersing and dissipating primarily via the isotropic expansion of the universe so that our universe and the medium in which it is a disturbance will eventually reach an equilibrium state (ie. the wave front and internal interacting wave structures that are our universe's boundaries and contents cease to exist).

Given the above assumptions, what definition of entropy, if any, might be applied to the universe and how might it be measured?
