Configurational temperature of charge-stabilized colloidal monolayers

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The first measurements of the configurational temperature in a system were discussed. It was shown that it is possible to measure the temperature of a system in equilibrium from static snapshots of its constituents' instantaneous configurations. A hierarchy of hyperconfigurational temperature definitions was introduced. The monolayers of charge-stabilized colloidal spheres were also analyzed.
