Demonstration of the steady-state fluctuation theorem from a single trajectory

Wang, Genmiao; Carberry, David; Reid, James; Sevick, Edith M; Evans, Denis


The fluctuation theorem (FT) quantifies the probability of Second Law of Thermodynamics violations in small systems over short timescales. While this theorem has been experimentally demonstrated for systems that are perturbed from an initial equilibrium state, there are a number of studies suggesting that the theorem applies asymptotically in the long time limit to systems in a non-equilibrium steady state. The asymptotic application of the FT to such non-equilibrium steady-states has been...[Show more]
