  1. 1. Non-equilibrium thermodynamics at the microscopic scales

    Author : Sreekanth K Manikandan; Supriya Krishnamurthy; David Lacoste; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Non-equilibrium statistical Physics; entropy production; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : An inherent feature of small systems in contact with thermal reservoirs, be it a pollen grain in water, or an active microbe flagellum, is fluctuations. Even with advanced microscopic techniques, distinguishing active, non-equilibrium processes defined by a constant dissipation of energy to the environment from passive, equilibrium processes is a very challenging task and a vastly developing field of research.

  2. 2. Dynamics and Thermodynamics of Translational and Rotational Diffusion Processes Driven out of Equilibrium

    Author : Raffaele Marino; Erik Aurell; Lacoste David; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Translational and Rotational Diffusion Processes; Brownian; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Diffusion processes play an important role in describing systems in many fields of science, as in physics, biology, finance and social science. One of the most famous examples of the diffusion process is the Brownian motion. READ MORE
