We develop a statistical physics’ picture of classical Newtonian gravitation and uncover rather notable en- tropic features. In particular, applying the classical canonical ensemble treatment of Newtonian gravitation (NG) generates unsuspected statistical constraints on important physical quantities entering the thermo- dynamics of gravitation. Some of these quantities are, for instance, the masses involved. We work in Gibbs’ canonical ensemble. One must appeal for this to a generalization of the Dimensional Regulation approach of Bollini and Giambiagi. For a full explanation of this theory see Dimensional Regularization and Non-Renormalizable Quantum Field Theories. Cambridge Scholars Publishing (2021). ISSN: 1-5275–6395-2.
