Abstract
The phase space of a light quantum in a given volume is subdivided int o ''cells'' of magnitude h3. The number of possible distributions of t he light quanta of a macroscopically defined radiation over these cell s gives the entropy and with it all thermodynamic properties of the ra diation.
