Abstract

We study the process of equilibration between two non-extensive subsystems in the framework of a particular non-extensive Boltzmann equation. We have found that even subsystems with different non-extensive properties achieve a common equilibrium distribution. We extract the thermodynamic temperature from final energy distributions in a particular case.
