On typicality in nonequilibrium steady states

Evans, Denis J.; Williams, Stephen R.; Searles, Debra J.; Rondoni, Lamberto

Description

From the statistical mechanical viewpoint, relaxation of macroscopic systems and response theory rest on a notion of typicality, according towhich the behavior of singlemacroscopic objects is given by appropriate ensembles: ensemble averages of observable quantities represent the measurements performed on single objects, because “almost all” objects share the same fate. In the case of non-dissipative dynamics and relaxation toward equilibrium states, “almost all” is referred to invariant...[Show more]
