In science:

Sext keV, since it corresponds to a constant-entropy (i.e. adiabatic) dynamics.
The phase-diagram of the IGM and the entropy floor of groups and clusters: are clusters born warm?
Thus, Tad is the temperature reached by some adiabatic gas falling from the outer warm IGM into the cluster, with an initial entropy Sext acquired in a larger-scale filament.
The phase-diagram of the IGM and the entropy floor of groups and clusters: are clusters born warm?
The solid line is Sext = Sw , the dotted line Sext = Ssub while the lower dashed line is the mean defined in eq.(8).
The phase-diagram of the IGM and the entropy floor of groups and clusters: are clusters born warm?
However, we see that the case Sext = Ssub provides an entropy level which is too small.
The phase-diagram of the IGM and the entropy floor of groups and clusters: are clusters born warm?
The temperature - bolometric luminosity relation of clusters at z = 0, using Sext = Sw (solid line), Sext = Ssub (dotted line) or the mean Sext defined as in eq.(8) (lower dashed line).
The phase-diagram of the IGM and the entropy floor of groups and clusters: are clusters born warm?
Sext can be neglected here, so that the GSL reduces to the area theorem.
Challenging the generalized second law
The difference in TS between the Gaussian distribution and the pointsource hypothesis is T Sext = 72 (which converts into a significance of ∼ 8σ for the source extension) for 10 GeV < E < 100 GeV, which demonstrates that the source is significantly extended with respect to the LAT point spread function (PSF).
