Fluctuation theorems

Statistical Physics and Complexity Group meeting

Fluctuation theorems

Event details

Fluctuation theorems are a series of closely related relations dealing with fluctuations of thermodynamic quantities, but arbitrarily far from equilibrium. In this talk I will briefly review the most prominent ones, mostly in a chronological order since their first introduction more than 20 years ago. The second talk will be devoted to experimental verifications and practical applications.
