Time-dependent fluctuation theorem

Mittag, Emil; Evans, Denis


The fluctuation theorem (FT) is a generalization of the second law of thermodynamics that applies to small systems observed for short times. For thermostated systems it gives the probability ratio that entropy will be consumed rather than produced. In the present paper, we propose a version of the FT that applies to thermostated dissipative systems which respond to time-dependent dissipative fields. In testing the time-dependent fluctuation theorem we provide convincing evidence that sets of...[Show more]
