Gibbs paradox and its resolutions (http://www.mdpi.org/lin/entropy/gibbs-paradox.htm)

The resolution of this paradox has been very controversial. A list of papers mainly published in journals on this topic is compiled. Comments are welcomed. Please write me (E-mail: lin@mdpi.org) if you have a paper to be listed here or if you have any suggestion. I have a collection of almost all papers in pdf format.

Ph.D.  Theses
1. Porta Mana, P.G.L. Studies in plausibility theory, with applications to physics. Ph.D. Thesis, 2007. The updated version with a few additional corrections, available at http://www.tp.umu.se/~mana/. 
The following papers have been recommended by Dr. Porta Mana on 10 April 2008 for adding to this list:
2. Faria, S.H. Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Mixtures with Continuous Diversity: From Complex Media to Ice Sheets. Technische Universität Darmstadt, 2003. PDF format, 4.6 MB. Last access 11 April 2008. http://elib.tu-darmstadt.de/diss/000307/

The papers by 
S.H. Faria are relevant because they make mathematically clear and precise the idea of a "continuously variable similarity" between substances, which is, ashamingly, almost never made clear in the literature discussing the Gibbs paradox. Comments by Dr. P. G. L. Porta Mana, 10 April 2008
