Multisystem Temperature Equilibration and the Second Law
Leff, Harvey S.
American Journal of Physics, 45, 3, 252-254, Mar 77
Shows that the entropy change during the temperature equilibration of an isolated collection of systems which may exchange heat (but not work) energy is positive when the constant-volume heat capacity of each system is a non-negative function of the temperature. (MLH)
