The temperature derivative of the dielectric constant needs to refer to constant volume V. The entropy is derived by taking the temperature derivative of the free energy of a polarized dielectric at both the constant volume V and constant dielectric displacement (see Eq. (10.18) in Ref. 22). The constant-volume and constant-pressure derivatives of the dielectric constant can be related through thermodynamic formula involving the isobaric expansivity and isothermal compressibility (see Eq. (12) in Ref. 53).

A model of low-temperature polar liquids is constructed that accounts for the configurational heat capacity,
entropy, and the effect of a strong electric field on the glass transition. The model is based on the Padé-truncated perturbation expansions of the liquid state theory. Depending on parameters, it accommodates an ideal glass transition of vanishing configurational entropy and its avoidance, with a square-root divergent enumeration function at the point of its termination. A composite density-temperature parameter ρ
γ/T, often used to represent combined pressure and temperature data, follows from the model. The theory is in good agreement with the experimental data for excess (over the crystal state) thermodynamics of molecular glass formers. We suggest that the Kauzmann entropy crisis might be a signature of vanishing configurational entropy of a subset of degrees of freedom, multipolar rotations in our model. This scenario has observable consequences: (i) a dynamical crossover of the relaxation time and (ii) the fragility index defined by the ratio of the excess heat capacity and excess entropy at the glass transition. The Kauzmann temperature of vanishing configurational entropy and the corresponding glass transition temperature shift upward when the electric field is applied. The temperature shift scales quadratically with the field strength.
