We argue that the inverse temperature 4-vector β is the only viable option from the laws of thermodynamics, and β is a future-directed timelike 4-vector. Using a superfluidity thought\nexperiment, one can show that β is not necessarily along the time\ndirection of the comoving frame of the system, as is usually thought. It is\nconjectured that, for an isolated system, the 4-vector is determined from the\nentropy-maximum principle.","mimetype":"text/plain","lang":"en"},{"sha1":"4bc24bba311375bc9371ee9bd7f27717249c1754","content":"There exist several prescriptions for identifying the notion of temperature\nin special relativity.
