We consider a small closed physical systems. It has fixed energy and if the energy is a power of its generale coordinates then the distribution of any single coordinate will follow a distribution that maximizes Tsallis entropy. For many aspects of entropy can be discussed for such small systems with out going to the thermodynamical limit. By letting the number of degrees of freedom tend to infinity the ordinary entropy formalism is recovered.
