Abstract

Different statements of the zeroth law are examined. Two types of statements—which characterize two aspects of temperature—are found. A new formulation of the zeroth law is given and a corollary is stated. By means of this corollary it is shown how temperature and transitivity are used to disclose new nonthermal modes of interaction.
