Abstract: We study the Casimir effect at finite temperature for a massless scalar fieldin the parallel plates geometry in N spatial dimensions, under variouscombinations of Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions on the plates. Weshow that in all these cases the entropy, in the limit where energyequipartitioning applies, is a geometrical factor whose sign determines thesign of the Casimir force.
