B Thermodynamics & Trajectories

  1. Jul 31, 2016 #1
    I know thermodynamics are the macroscopic coarse graining of microscopic degrees of freedom (like temperature and Brownian motion). But is there a case where let's say the bohmian wave function can create trajectories of particles that can control the macroscopic thermodynamics or has significant effect?

    First: When energy passes into or out from a system, the system's internal energy changes in accord with the law of conservation of energy.
    Second: In a natural thermodynamic process, the sum of the entropies of the interacting thermodynamic systems increases.
    Third: The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temperature approaches absolute zero.

    In BM, the particles don't radiate em wave as they move.. it is the wave function in BM that radiates.

    But in thermodynamics.. is it the BM particles that hit the walls or the BM wave function hitting the BM wave function of the walls?
