A non-equilibrium free energy theorem for deterministic systems

Evans, Denis


Jarzynski and Crooks have recently shown that equilibrium free energy differences can be computed from non-equilibrium thermodynamic path integrals. In the present paper we give a new derivation of this extraordinary relation. Our derivation which is valid for time reversible deterministic systems highlights the close relationship between the non-equilibrium free energy theorems and the fluctuation theorem.
