If the matrix is taken to be antisymmetric, ÈðxÞ ¼ ÀÈðxÞT ð123Þ then the quasi-orthogonality condition (121) is automatically satisfied. That same condition shows that ÈðxÞ ¼ E ÈðExÞT E ð124Þ since f 1 ðExÞ ¼ ÀEf 1 ðxÞ. The derivative of the second entropy, Eq.

This was also observed by Casimir [24] and by Grabert et al.
