    In this paper, we investigate entropy properties of the single-mode binomial field interacting with the two entangled two-level atoms. It is found that the different initial conditions lead to the different evolutions of entropy of the binomial field.

    Since most land surfaces are non-uniform on meteorological model scales, usually applied flux-profile relationships to obtain surface flux densities cannot be used. Therefore, some modellers assume that these relations are scale-invariant if the local bulk transfer parameters are replaced by...
