Ensemble Dependence of the Transient Fluctuation Theorem

Searles, Debra J.; Evans, Denis J.


The Fluctuation Theorem gives an analytical expression for the probability of observing second law violating dynamical fluctuations, in nonequilibrium systems. At equilibrium statistical mechanical fluctuations are known to be ensemble dependent. In this paper we generalise the Transient and Steady State Fluctuation Theorems to various nonequilibrium dynamical ensembles. The Transient and Steady State Fluctuation Theorem for an isokinetic ensemble of isokinetic trajectories is tested...[Show more]
