Paper Abstract

Statistical physics bridges for latency information theory (LIT) are revealed in this second paper of a three
paper series that include the discovery of the time dual of thermodynamics. LIT is the universal guidance theory for
efficient system designs that has inherently surfaced from the confluence of five ideas. They are: 1) The source entropy
and channel capacity performance bounds of Shannon's mathematical theory of communication; 2) The latency time
(LT) certainty of Einstein's relativity theory; 3) The information space (IS) uncertainty of Heisenberg's quantum
physics; 4) The black hole Hawking radiation and its Boltzmann thermodynamics entropy S in SI J/K; and 5) The
author's 1978 conjecture of a structural-physical LT-certainty/IS-uncertainty duality for stochastic control. LIT is
characterized by a four quadrants revolution with two mathematical-intelligence quadrants and two physical-life ones.
Each quadrant of LIT is assumed to be physically independent of the others and guides its designs with an entropy if it is
IS-uncertain and an ectropy if it is LT-certain. While LIT's physical-life quadrants I and III address the efficient use of
life time by physical signal movers and of life space by physical signal retainers, respectively, its mathematicalintelligence
quadrants II and IV address the efficient use of intelligence space by mathematical signal sources and of
processing time by mathematical signal processors, respectively. Seven results are stated next that relate to the revelation
of statistical physics bridges for LIT. They are: 1) Thermodynamics, a special case of statistical physics, has a time dual
named lingerdynamics; 2) Lingerdynamics has a dimensionless lingerdynamics-ectropy Z that is the LT-certainty dual of
a dimensionless thermodynamics-entropy, and like thermodynamics has four physical laws that drive the Universe; 3) S
advances a bridge between quadrant II's source-entropy H in bit units and quadrant III's retainer-entropy N in SI m2
units; 4) Z advances a bridge between quadrant I's mover-ectropy A in SI secs and quadrant IV's processor-ectropy K in
binary operator (bor) units; 5) Statistical physics bridges are discovered between the LIT entropies and the LIT
ectropies; 6) Half of the statistical physics bridges between the LIT entropies and LIT ectropies are found to be medium
independent, thus yielding the same entropy-ectropy relationships for black holes, ideal gases, biological systems, etc.;
and 7) A medium independent quadratic relationship τ=l(M/▵M)2 relates the lifespan τ of a retained mass M to the ratio
of M to the fractional mass ▵M that escapes it every l seconds, e.g., for a human with M = 70 kg, expected lifespan of
τ=83.9 years (or 2.65 Gsec),

*l*=1 day (or 86.4 ksec), its daily escaping mass is given by ▵M=0.4*kg*. In turn, this requires him/her to consume 2,000 kcal per day (i.e., 5,000*kcal/kg*times 0.4*kg*) to replace the 0.4*kg*lost from day to day which correlates well with expectations.
