In science:

We have shown that only these two relationships allow to interpret the zeroth law of thermodynamics within NSM and define a physical temperature without any approximation.
Generalized algebra within a nonextensive statistics
Zeroth and Second Laws of Thermodynamics Simultaneously Questioned in the Quantum Microworld Eur.
The Deep Physics Behind the Second Law: Information and Energy As Independent Forms of Bookkeeping
Note that, though it seems that it confirms the zeroth law of the thermodynamics, our result is radically different from it – it is obtained by the use of an entirely new approach to the dynamics of the interactions.
Fluctuations and Long-Term Stability: from Coherence to Chaos
The area of a Killing horizon is constant and, under mild assumptions, they satisfy the zeroth law of black hole thermodynamics.
Black holes and black hole thermodynamics without event horizons
Hawking’s result immediately shows the importance of the zeroth law of black hole mechanics as the zeroth law of black hole thermodynamics which states that the Hawking temperature is uniform everywhere on a stationary black hole horizon.
The issue of zeroth law for Killing horizons in Lanczos-Lovelock gravity
Zeroth Law compatibility of non-additive thermodynamics.
Generic stability in dissipative generalized mechanics
The analogy of these three laws with the Zeroth, First and Second laws of ordinary thermodynamics is hard to miss, with the surface gravity being analogous to temperature, horizon area with entropy and mass with internal energy.
Black hole entropy: classical and quantum aspects
On the other hand, however, the zeroth law of thermodynamics should have repelled such a possibility, because heat will not be transferred between two systems or two parts of a system provided there is no difference of temperature.
Measuring the Entropy and Testing the Second Law of Thermodynamics
The zeroth law of thermodynamics is a kind of transitivity.
Violation of the zeroth law of thermodynamics for a non-ergodic interaction
The zeroth, first and second laws of thermodynamics impose restrictions that prohibit certain types of engines — these can be conventionally called perpetual motions of the zeroth, first and second kind depending on which laws these engines violate.
Teaching the third law of thermodynamics
The first engine represents a possible engine placed into an impossible situation banned by zeroth law of thermodynamics, when temperatures of the reservoirs are not transitive, which symbolically can be represented by TH > TC > T0 > TH , where TH > TC means that the heat naturally flows from TH to TC .
Teaching the third law of thermodynamics
In Section IV, the thermal axioms (the zeroth law of thermodynamics, in particular) will be invoked to verify our assumptions about comparability in compound systems.
The Physics and Mathematics of the Second Law of Thermodynamics
It is difficult to overstate its importance since it is the key to eventually establishing the fact that entropy is additive not only with respect to scaled copies of one system but also with respect to different kinds of systems. T3) Zeroth law of thermodynamics.
