Thermodynamics and Wick Rotation

Having two blogs is a bit confusing. My student Mike Stay has some deep puzzles about physics, which I posted over at the n-Category Café:

• Mike Stay, Thermodynamics and Wick Rotation.

But maybe this blog already has some of its own readers, who don’t usually read the n-Café, but are interested in physics? I don’t know.

Anyway: if you’re interested in the mysterious notion of temperature as imaginary time, please click the link and help us figure it out. This should keep us entertained until I’m done with “week300” — the last issue of This Week’s Finds in Mathematical Physics.

No comments here, please — that would get really confusing.
