On the fluctuation theorem for the dissipation function and its connection with response theory

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


Recently, there has been considerable interest in the fluctuation theorem (FT). The Evans-Searles FT shows how time reversible microscopic dynamics leads to irreversible macroscopic behavior as the system size or observation time increases. We show that the argument of this FT, the dissipation function, plays a central role in nonlinear response theory and derive the dissipation theorem, giving exact relations for nonlinear response of classical N-body systems that are more widely applicable...[Show more]
