Abstract: It is shown that the laws of thermodynamics are extremely robust undergeneralizations of the form of entropy. Using the Bregman-type relativeentropy, the Clausius inequality is proved to be always valid. This impliesthat thermodynamics is highly universal and does not rule out consistentgeneralization of the maximum entropy method.
