Partial energies fluctuations and negative heat capacities.
Xavier Campi1, H. Krivine1, E. Plagnol2, N. Sator3

We proceed to a critical examination of the method used in nuclear fragmentation to exhibit signals of negative heat capacity. We show that this method leads to unsatisfactory results when applied to a simple and well controlled model. Discrepancies are due to incomplete evaluation of potential energies.
