On the relationship between dissipation and the rate of spontaneous entropy production from linear irreversible thermodynamics

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


When systems are far from equilibrium, the temperature, the entropy and the thermodynamic entropy production are not defined and the Gibbs entropy does not provide useful information about the physical properties of a system. Furthermore, far from equilibrium, or if the dissipative field changes in time, the spontaneous entropy production of linear irreversible thermodynamics becomes irrelevant. In 2000 we introduced a definition for the dissipation function and showed that for systems of...[Show more]
