A course on Nonequilibrium Processes
Kirone Mallick from the Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) CEA Saclay is giving a set of lectures describing recent advances in systems far from equilibrium. After a review of equilibrium thermodynamics, the lectures will introduce the fascinating identities of Jarzinski and Crooks which quantify the transient violations of the second principle. This will be followed by the fluctuation theorem of Gallavoti-Cohen. Here is the exciting programme
1. Review of statistical physics: Equilibrium versus Non-equilibrium. Dynamics, Detailed Balance and Time-reversal.
