The heat capacities of ferrofluids are investigated using a thermodynamic perturbation theory approach and the NVT and NpT Monte Carlo simulation methods. The systems studied are considered as one-, three-, and five-component dipolar mixtures modeled by the Stockmayer interaction potential. The isochoric and isobaric heat capacities are calculated and compared with the data determined for a monodisperse equivalent of the system.
