Then Gibby saw horns on the stranger's heid,
An', lookin' doon to his feet,
He saw he divided the hoof like a stot,
An' he shook wi' terror to see't.

His han' slip alang my arm;
An' his touch was like to a reid-hot airn,
For the place at ance grew warm.

In science:

S z tot = 0, the obtained target states generally have the finite total spin Stot .
Low Energy Properties of the Random Spin-1/2 Ferromagnetic-Antiferromagnetic Heisenberg Chain
As we will show in short, the mathematical identity he−R i = 1, together with Eq. (7), implies the following integral fluctuation theorem for the total entropy variation along a stochastic tra jectory ∆stot, he−∆stot i = 1.
Test of the fluctuation theorem for stochastic entropy production in a nonequilibrium steady state
S (t) is the contribution to ˙Stot (t) coming from the changes in the system probability distribution and ˙Sr (t) is the contribution coming from matter and energy exchange processes between the system and its reservoirs.
Entropy fluctuation theorems in driven open systems: application to electron counting statistics
We next summarize our results ˙Stot (t) = ˙Sna (t) + ˙Sa (t) ≥ 0 ˙Sna (t) = ˙Sd (t) + ˙Sb (t) ≥ 0 ˙Sa (t) ≥ 0 .

Entropy fluctuation theorems in driven open systems: application to electron counting statistics
Given these assumptions we can ask for what partition will Stot be maximum, or equivalently, which partition is the most probable? If we write E2 = Etot − E1 and recall that Etot is fixed, this task is easy.

The von Neumann entropy of the total system is clearly zero Stot = −tr ρtot log ρtot = 0.
Holographic Entanglement Entropy: An Overview
Thus, the functional Stot [A, λ, c, ¯c, b; A∗, λ∗, c∗ ; ξ, µ, ε] which solves both the ghost equation (2.24) and the gauge-f ixing condition (2.23) has the form Stot = Z d4x (b + ξ · ∂ ¯c)niAi + ¯S [A, λ, c; ˆA∗ i, A∗J, λ∗, c∗ ; ξ, µ, ε], where the b-dependent term ensures the validity of condition (2.23).
Gauge Theories on Deformed Spaces
The Ward identities describing the (non-)invariance of Stot under the VSUSY variations δi, the vectorial symmetry transformations ˆδi and the translations ∂i can be derived from the ST identity (2.22) by dif ferentiating this identity with respect to the corresponding constant ghosts εi, µi and ξ i, respectively.
