The covariant dissipation function for transient nonequilibrium states

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


It has recently become apparent that the dissipation function, first defined by Evans and Searles [J. Chem. Phys. 113, 3503 (2000)], is one of the most important functions in classical nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. It is the argument of the Evans-Searles fluctuation theorem, the dissipation theorem, and the relaxation theorems. It is a function of both the initial distribution and the dynamics. We pose the following question: How does the dissipation function change if we define that...[Show more]
